Review:

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 from a shared popular cultural perspective. Empirical data supporting the inclusion of popular film in the curriculum indicates watching contemporary movies can facilitate a wide range of learning outcomes... Abstract concepts, including the wide world of psychopathology, can be brought to life and embodied within movies. Movies grab our attention, stay in our memories, and are often our primary tool for developing narratives of the world.
Finding the right film is a daunting and delicate task for teachers. Most instructors don t know where to find the material needed to effectively incorporate this essential media tool. Psychology instructors can now breathe a sigh of relief ... Movies and Mental Illness 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. Wedding and Niemiec s text enables every abnormal or psychopathology instructor to ensure the selected films have been vetted to have maximum positive benefits.
The book is best used as an assigned text in an Abnormal Psychology or Psychopathology course but is also very valuable as a reference book used by instructors to build portions of their own syllabi. [It] is especially helpful for instructors trying to incorporate this pedagogy since it provides sample syllabi and gives instructions on how to integrate the use of film within the standard college semester course.
Movies & Mental Illness serves not only as a resource for academics, but as a psycho-educational resource for therapists interested in utilizing cinematherapy.
Wedding and Niemiec s fourth edition of Movies & Mental Illness will help many psychologists create the ideal learning experience, where students gain an education relevant to their lived experience and clinicians facilitate a client breaking through resistances and reaching their goal. Reviewed by Afiya Mangum Mbilishaka and Linda Berg-Cross, Howard University, Washington, DC, in PsycCRITIQUES (2015);
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
