PSYCHIATRISTS AS CONSULTANTS TO THE BRITISH BOARD OF FILM CLASSIFICATION

Have you been to the cinema recently, and were you shocked at the violence on screen?  Perhaps you even considered the sexual content to be verging on the pornographic?

Dr Raj Persaud talks to Dr Cleo Van Velson, the Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist who decided that the film ‘Irreversible’ was safe for public consumption, and discovers why she considers Forest Gump more damaging than many violent films.

Dr Persaud debates how the viewing of violent films affects behaviour with Robin Duval, Director of the British Board of Film Classification and Simon Moore, Academic Leader for Applied Psychology at London Metropolitan University, who will be co-presenting his research on The role of social context when viewing media violence at this week’s annual conference of the British Psychological Society.

TIDAL MODEL

In recent years a new movement has emerged which puts the patient at the centre of psychiatric nursing practice, it includes an approach called the Tidal Model.

Dr Julie Repper, Senior Research Fellow In Mental Health at the University of Sheffield and expert on patient-centred nursing, Eileen Drummond, clinical team leader in an acute admissions ward with Teeside Health Trust who took on the Tidal Model three years ago and Lynne Roberts, nurse consultant at Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales who introduced the Model to her team just two months ago explain how it benefits the patient.

Dr Persaud is joined by Professor Phil Barker the creator of the Tidal Model.

CHILD MENTAL HEALTH PROJECT IN RUSSIA

HealthProm works in partnership to improve healthcare for the most vulnerable in the former Soviet Union.  Dr Persaud talks to Valeri Gafurov, coordinator of a child mental health project in Sverdlovsk Province near Siberia, which has helped to reduce the number of child psychiatric beds by thirty per cent.
