About the Course:

This course is designed with an e-book that explains scene-by-scene information about the other material component, the Paramount Pictures movie, Fatal Attraction, starring Glenn Close. The materials demonstrate and guide participants in the application of knowledge about symptoms, diagnosis, mental status, social, vocational impairments, treatment, and disability management for a person who has borderline personality disorder. The movie portrays a textbook example of the disorder and is valuable for learning about the illness.
