Welcome to a site of our projects analyzing the portrayals of psychological disorders in films.
Who are we? Twelve students at Pace University Pleasantville who enrolled in a learning community. The linked courses were PSY 320 Exploring the Abnormal and ENG 201 Writing in the Disciplines.
In the psychology course, we learned about a variety of disorders and their causes, symptoms, and effects.
In the writing course, we each chose a particular disorder to focus on. We researched that disorder and produced a literature review, and then we analyzed a movie portraying the disorder to see how closely it matched the literature review in a full researched argument.
Once we completed the extensive researched argument about the movie, we translated our research into a research poster.
That’s what we have featured here—quick synopses of our research and our findings. We hope you find it informative and interesting. Mental health matters, and educating ourselves is important for better understanding of mental health issues.
Glad to have you here educating yourself as well!
