    TRAGEDY IN PSYCHIATRY

    Our clinical cases series have been mainly short cases with several on the disc. Clinical Cases Three is different in that there is only a single case concerning one patient and her family.

    Working in Psychiatry presents unique challenges and this 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 commonest 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 have been pretty consistent in their responses with words such as powerful, thought provoking and shocking consistently appearing. The lessons are clear and not forgotten.
