New Collections in Sociology and Social Work

Symptom Media Collection

We now have a 3-year license to Symptom Media Collection. Symptom Media is an online mental health education and training film library. These DSM 5 and ICD guided films offer guideposts to better understand what a particular mental health diagnosis looks like. Videos range from 30 seconds to 15 minutes. They help users identify, understand, and recognize nonverbal cues and body language indicators; provide points of reference for cross comparisons and differentiate between diagnoses; and learn assessment skills.

Symptom Media Collection is available through library databases.
