PDS827: Participatory Cinema: Major Depressive, Bipolar and Related Disorders

March 11, 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. Odd Thomas: Looking for a hidden gem? Have you ever stumbled upon a movie that is “among the best films no one knows about?” What if this same film also becomes the cornerstone of a discussion about mood disorders? Don’t let the title fool you: this is a rare opportunity to learn the mood disorders through a film’s plot that promises to surprise! This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours.
