46 minute training video for psychiatry residents, social workers, clinical psychologists, mental health nurses, mental health counselors and case managers. View the video by clicking the play icon (it may take some time to load, depending on the speed of your internet connection). You can also view in full screen by clicking the icon at the bottom right corner of the video player, once the video has loaded. The goal of the video is to demonstrate how Latino patients present their stigma of mental illness and how skilled therapists manage it. The video is comprised of vignettes of interviews with three simulated Latino patients: A young man with schizophrenia; a grandmother with bipolar disorder, whose son does not think she is well enough to care for her granddaughter; and a young woman who has been molested by her mother’s boyfriend and previously misdiagnosed as having schizophrenia. The vignettes are based on cases developed by the psychiatrists who appear in the DVD. The patients are actors, but the case material comes from real patients with whom the clinicians have worked. The cases have been altered to protect the identities of the patients involved. Used with permission.
