i am deeply interested in all things related to the psyche (literally meaning "soul" later redefined as "mind" in order to be "P.C."). when i think of some of the things on this list i was exposed to prior to coming to college and LOVED, i clearly see i chose the right major.
girl,interrupted- based on the novel by susanna kaysen, this film chronicals the experiences of a young woman diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. i have yet to read the book, but the movie is one of my favs. (abnormal, counseling psychology)
sybil- a woman with dissociative identity disorder (commonly refered to as "multiple personality disorder"). also based on real life and a book. i want to read the book and see the movie. (abnormal psychology)
prozac nation- a memoir in which a woman who suffers from depression tells of the various medications she's placed on and the effects. very entertainting. (general psychology)
a beautiful mind- this oscar-winning film is based on the true story of a man who has schizophrenia (abnormal psychology)
eternal sunshine of the spotless mind- completely fictional, however this love tale is interesting to me. the movie speaks to passion, love, and motivation. i wonder what it would be like if you could erase people from your memory. (cognitive psychology)
the notebook- love story of an alzheimer's sufferer. beautiful movie. (abnormal psychology)
