Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

An examination and discussion of how the science and application of

Psychology are portrayed in popular film, and the consequences of such

depictions for practitioners and the public.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Psychology has often been a topic treated in popular film (movies and

television). Mental illness, therapeutic practices, human experimentation,

and client-practitioner relationships, have been and continue to be

represented with varying degrees of accuracy and authenticity. Such film

treatments have run the gamut from comedy to drama. At best, some

films have arguably helped foster social change, while at worst others

have portrayed Psychology and psychological issues in inaccurate and

potentially damaging ways. While such representations, both positive and

negative, can influence public impressions of the field, such popular art

can also have consequences for the professional as well. Through a

careful examination of selected films, students will develop a deeper

appreciation of the role such art may play in influencing public perception

of Science in general and Psychology in particular. By attaining greater

understanding of how popular culture may impart problematic

perceptions of the field, the student will be better versed and better able

to anticipate and address biases and misconceptions of the public.
