Participatory Cinema: Personality Disorders (PDS7906)

June 6, 2019, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Instructor: Anthony Tobia, MD
Movies have long been utilized to highlight varied areas in the field of psychiatry including the role of the psychiatrist, issues in medical ethics, and the stigma toward people with mental illness. At Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, comprehensive curricula have been created utilizing films as fictional case accounts of mental disorders. At the Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies, facilitated discussion of a selected film is achieved via social media as well as traditional PowerPoint didactic. Each seminar will show a feature-length film with a live Twitter feed on the screen that will transform the movie into an educational didactic. The Sandlot demonstrates aspects of personality development making the film a valuable medium to teach the Personality Disorders. Hope springs eternal in this 1993 coming-of-age sports comedy. The new-kid motif, neighborhood urban legends, and our national pastime merge to form a perfect medium to review personality theory and discuss the personality disorders.
