PDS1533 Participatory Cinema: Cognitive Disorders

April 8, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


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 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.  BEST PICTURE alert! We’ve recently launched an innovative lecture series that reviews medication management through film narratives. Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky was our first film to demonstrate how a plot would change if a mental disorder was properly diagnosed and treated. For this seminar, we’ll focus on the diagnosis (and talk a little about pharmacology) in reviewing the cognitive disorders. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours.
