Academic Speaker Series: At the Movies with Dr. Engstrom

Feb 11

Through well-chosen scenes from popular movies, Dr. Fritz Engstrom, Chief Medical Officer of The Brattleboro Retreat, will discuss some principles of psychiatry he's been teaching for over 25 years. Join us!

At the Movies with Dr. Engstrom: Living with Someone with a Mental Disorder

Watching movies is a great way to spend the time – and to learn! We will view scenes from popular films (About A Boy, The Last Picture Show, Lone Star, A Beautiful Mind, and others) to think about what it is like to live with someone with a mental disorder, such as depression. These brief, well-chosen scenes are captivating and fun, and designed to provoke spirited discussion with presenter Fritz Engstrom, MD, the Chief Medical Officer of The Brattleboro Retreat.  Dr. Engstrom has been using film clips to teach principles of psychiatry for over 25 years and we're excited to welcome him as our first presenter in the 2013 Spring Academic Speaker Series.

The presentation begins at 7 p.m. and will be held in the East Academic Building Auditorium on the Landmark College campus.
