Research Spotlight: Hollywood Therapy – Mental Health Professionals in American Film

All around the country, Alpha Chi members are producing extraordinary scholarship across the disciplines. This year we had the unique opportunity of receiving video and PowerPoint presentations of student research as Alpha Chi’s spring convention had to go “virtual.” We’ll be spotlighting some of these student presentations over the coming months. Let their work be your inspiration!

This week’s presentation is entitled “Hollywood Therapy: The Portrayal of Mental Health Professionals in American Film from 2010 to 2017.” It is presented by Timothy Crowell of Greensboro College, and focuses on the portrayal of mental health professionals in 24 contemporary films.
