Studying mental illness through art certainly aids understanding of both symptoms and treatment, and it is a valid subject for medical students to study. Students went away with a better understanding of mental illness and hopefully some resistance to the stigmatising influences they will encounter in their later experiences in medicine.

O psiquiatra inglês Bob Adams escreve sobre sua experiência de ensino do tema “psiquiatria & arte” para alunos de medicina. O artigo Dark side of the moon: a course in mental health and the arts pode ser valioso para quem se interessa por novas metologias de ensino da psiquiatria. Eu gostei.
