Notice: Please do NOT enrol on this course on impulse, thinking you might watch it later. Maybe show an interest on impulse, yes, but before you enrol, watch the Preview videos, read the Course Description and then make a decision. If you then enrol then please start the course as soon as possible. Watch the lectures, look at the workbooks and join in the discussions. Joining my courses is a serious business and I want you to get the most out of your study – but I also want you to enjoy the course.

That is why I am asking that you only enrol because you really want to and that you start the course intending to make full use of all the resources.

You will be very welcome.

In Cinema, Theatre and Depression, many students enrolled but some felt there needed to be more involvement, more chances to carry out exercises, make comments etc.

I listen to what people say!

This course has activities to do at the end of lectures and you are asked to post comments in the Q/A section. The more students become involved, the better the course.

This course provides YOU with the material to learn, explore, discuss and then overcome depression.

The medium that is used is Cinema and Theatre

Please participate if you do enrol! You will gain so much more if you do the homework!

I thought it was more like having drama activities for depression relief not just reflections on some plays and movies. Sometimes I am lost in the very long lectures that I don't know where the educational part is.

This course is absolutely fantastic. I am going to say why: 1. The Instructor was one of the actors in nearly every single film clip. This made me far more connected to the film 2. Numerous pieces of homework made me think about the films. I have posted my answers but it is up to other students to comment 3. This is not about cinema or acting but they all added quality to the course. The many studies quoted added depth to the analysis of depression 4. Famous films were referred to as well and that helped a lot 5. I also liked the full play shown - also written by the Intructor 6. The course is very long so plenty to watch and comment on and think about 7. I watched the Mk I version too and areas of that feed into this which is really great! Fascinating to see the film by the 17 year old Producer. So, yes, this is a fabulous course. WELL DONE UDEMY!
