Medical, nursing, psychotherapy and counselling students. Also suitable for senior staff who may wish to use this case to reflect on their own clinical practice.
On Clinical Cases Three there is only a single case concerning one patient with a psychotic illness and and her family.
There are challenges unique to psychiatry and case highlights some of them. There are lessons here for all mental health care workers, especially students. The presentation lasts nearly one hour and includes interviews with the patient and her mother.
The diagnostic problems are highlighted and discussed with senior staff. One of the most common worries students have is knowing what to do when disaster strikes and this is fully explored. Sometimes there are no easy answers.
There are DVD extras that show the interviews uncut and allow a lecturer to make use of very powerful material. During production the test audiences were pretty consistent in their responses with words such as thought provoking and shocking consistently appearing.
The lessons are clear and not forgotten. Quite heavy going and upsetting.
