Opiniões


"Movies and Mental Illness, 4th Edition by Danny Wedding and Ryan Niemiec is an extraordinary resource for any educators wishing to illustrate complex mental health issues using the popular medium of film. The writing is clear and enjoyable to read. Although the book is specifically designed for an undergraduate psychology course and even includes a sample syllabus, it can readily be applied to graduate medical education. The book is also a helpful resource for clinicians looking to use film in individual or group patient meetings to encourage discussion and reflection.Movies and Mental Illness, 4th Edition is a welcome addition to any clinician or teacher wanting to use film as an engaging supplement for education."
Matt Martin, PhD, Duke/SR-AHEC Family Medicine Residency Program, Fayetteville, NC, in Family Medicine, vol. 47, October 2015

" This book has a large audience - ... ranging from lay persans wishing to gain an insight into mental health in an easily digestible format through to those formally teaching mental health courses. It can easily be used by non-healthcare professionals or those who would like a light introduction to mental health without having to digest numerous textbooks, or like myself prefer a different way of learning."
Ibadete Fetahu in NursingTimes.net, September 2015

"In their masterful and entertaining yet thoroughly well-referenced and academic book, Wedding and Niemiec painstakingly provide detailed descriptions of numerous films, with critical thinking questions, references, and fictional patient evaluations … and in doing so succeed in highlighting cinema as an effective modality for teaching psychopathology and for intellectually challenging students on psychiatric differential diagnosis and treatment.
The authors use DSM-5 to arrange their table of contents of 16 chapters. Indeed, the reader can effectively use this book to learn the DSM-5. It is an amazing accomplishment that, for even relatively obscure diagnoses, the authors have ready a diversified portfolio of relevant movies.
The 8 appendices are thought-provoking [and] include a sample course syllabus that could serve as an outline to create a successful course to educate students on mental illness, differential diagnosis, and treatment options.
I highly recommend this book to educators, mental health care clinicians, and students."
Matthew A. Becker, MD, University of California School of Medicine, in Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 2015; 76(5):e671

"A winning text for students with pedagogical tips for teachers … Movies and Mental Illness allows educators to weave psychological concepts and issues into a format that naturally engages students and facilitates classroom participation. [It] presents a cornucopia of ideas on how to integrate film as a best practice in the education of students, patients, and the public about mental illness.
Finding the right film is a daunting and delicate task for teachers. Wedding and Niemiec’s text enables every abnormal or psychopathology instructor to ensure the selected films have been vetted to have maximum positive benefits.
Best used as an assigned text in Abnormal Psychology or Psychopathology courses, but also very valuable as a reference book for instructors, since it provides sample syllabi and instructions on how to integrate the use of films within the standard college semester course. Movies and Mental Illness will help educators create the ideal learning experience where students gain an eduction relevant to their lived experience and clinicians facilitate a client breaking through resistances and reaching their goal."
Afiya Mangum Mbilishaka and Linda Berg-Cross, in PsycCRITIQUES vol. 60 (22), 2015

"This is an educational and enjoyable read. It can be used in many ways with students, clients, and patients [and] educate people about mental illness in almost any setting. The book does a very good job of providing numerous selections that deal with each mental illness and raise critical questions about their portrayal. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in how mental illness is depicted in movies."
Brett C. Plyler, MD, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, in Doody's listings and reviews, 2014
