AbstractThis paper describes a unique model of using scenarios in the form of film clips from popular television series and films to teach human rights from a perspective of bioethics. The methodology has been developed over twelve years of teaching and research by the Department of Ethics and Human Rights in the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Buenos Aires. This approach has been developed for mental health intervention in disasters and applied in a course utilizing multi-media materials that has been organized to facilitate understanding the articles of the Universal Declaration of Bioethics and Human Rights and to promote interest and research in a new field intersecting psychology, human rights, health and legal issues.
