Welcome to Presenting Problems

"Presenting Problems" is a series of short films that address dilemmas faced by both patients and psychotherapists. The films do this not by portraying people with particular symptoms (depression, anxiety, etc.) or by illustrating diagnostic categories (masochism, narcissism and so on). The stories explore a line of thinking or a way of being as a way of talking about an internal situation. Through humor and using a variety of visual mediums, they hope to raise questions about psychological conflict and its complicated relation to internal life. The films have been used for classroom discussions, clinical training and for anyone else interested in such things.
