Early in the history of cinema, psychiatrists studied the movies to understand their appeal and power. Meanwhile, filmmakers have long been intrigued by psychiatry and frequently portray this mysterious world in film. Both movies and psychiatry focus on human thought, emotions, behavior, and motivation -- making a link between the two subjects inevitable.

Psychiatry and the Cinema explores this complementary relationship from two angles, psychiatrists who have studied the movies and movies that have depicted psychiatry. This second edition looks at: Over 400 theatrically-released American films that feature psychiatrists or other mental health professionals at work The stereotypical characters and conventions dominating the presentation of movie psychiatrists and the historical rise and fall of the psychotherapist image in the movies New trends in psychoanalytically oriented film theory State-of-the-art understanding of psychoanalytic film criticism and illustrative examples of the use of that methodology with films such as Casablanca, Alien, Three Women, Sea of Love, Working Girl, Good Will Hunting, and many more Clinical implications of the film representations of psychotherapy for the mental health practitioner

Both entertaining and educational, this book serves as an important aid in understanding the special hold that movies have on audiences.

Review:

"Now released in a second edition, it remains the definitive inquiry about that curious bedfellowship of psychiatry and American film that has flourished since the medium's advent near the century's turn."- "Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders, Vol. 188(9)," "September 2000"

"I largely enjoyed reading this book and will be pleased to have it as a reference as the inevitable additional films about psychiatry continue to be produced. I suspect that psychiatrist now depicted as succeeding only with the talking cure may well start to be represented by psychopharmacologists, neurophysiologists, brain imagists, and others as Hollywood catches up with the neurosciences in the future."- "Journal of Clinical Psychiatry"

"The first edition of "Psychiatry and the Cinema" appeared in 1987. Now released in a second edition, it remains the definitive inquiry about that curious bedfellowship of psychiatry and American film that has flourished since the medium's advent near the century's turn. The book is the product of a felicitous partnership between brothers Glen O. Gabbard and his brother Krin Gabbard, a prominent film/jazz scholar."-- "The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"

"I thoroughly enjoyed "Psychiatry and the Cinema".... If you have even a passing interest in psychiatry and film, you will want to read this book. If you have more than a passing interest, you will want to read it more than once."-- "Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic"

"The discussion is both comprehensive and deep.... Any moviegoer eager to understand his or her own response to films will find these analyses provocative."-- "JAMA"

"I largely enjoyed reading this book and will be pleased to have it as a reference as the inevitable additional films about psychiatry continue to be produced. I suspect that psychiatrist now depicted as succeeding only with the talking cure may well start to be represented by psychopharmacologists, neurophysiologists, brain imagists, and others as Hollywood catches up with the neurosciences in the future."-- "Journal of Clinical Psychiatry"

"Now released in a second edition, it remains the definitive inquiry about that curious bedfellowship of psychiatry and American film that has flourished since the medium's advent near the century's turn."-- "Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders, Vol. 188(9)", "September 2000"
