The Madness of Dancing Daniel
Personality Disorder Case StudyStreaming Video - 2008
Daniel Turnbull has a love of London, an obsession with hygiene, and a compulsion to dance. This program explores his rare personality disorder and describes one psychiatrist's attempt to help him create as normal a life as possible. Viewers will learn about Daniel's previous quests for independence, the behavior that got him blacklisted by most of London's assisted-living facilities, and the likelihood that he'll spend the rest of his life in a mental institution. The film also explores the possibility of hope in the form of Dr. Peter Tyrer, a specialist in personality disorders who has found one home willing to take Daniel. But it's located almost 200 miles from London, posing a critical test of the young man's sense of security.
