PSY1 – Psychopathology: Lesson 1-3

Context and Introduction

We spent the first lessons of this unit of work watching One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  We watched it trying to judge the ‘sane’ from the ‘insane’.  Importantly we could see there were some who were clearly insane from beginning to end but there were lots of the characters (including Randall, Billy  and Nurse Ratchett) for whom the line between ‘sane’ and ‘insane’ was a bit more blurred.
