Psychology at the Movies

Followed by a Q&A


A convict simulates mental illness in the hope that a transfer to psychiatric hospital might ensure his early release. But he hasn’t bargained for the rigid regimen of Nurse Ratched who dislikes his disruptive – though he’d say liberating – effect on the ward.


The multi-Oscar winning One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest is regarded by many as one of the greatest movies of all time and #1 movie for anyone even remotely interested in psychology.


Guest speakers for the post-movie Q & A will be:

Sukhi Shergill, Professor of Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry; Dr. Andy Aresti, Criminologist and Dr. Kevin Morgan, Psychotherapist.
