Throughout the movie The Sixth Sense I found two of many psychological factors Depression a psychological disorder characterized by extreme sadness and inability to concentrate and feelings of helplessness and dejection In the movie Malcoms wife was devestated from tht loss of her husband She was shown talking in her sleep about him as if he were still there There was also a scene that shown the anti-depressant pills that she was taking A couple of scenes showed the tape from their wedding that she put on She also still went to their restaurant as if he was still with her Happy Anniversary she said I think depression was accuratly shown through Malcoms wife and her grief Munchausen syndrome by proxy The fabrication of symptoms or physical evidence of anothers illness or the deliberate causing of anothers illness to gain medical attention Cole was confronted with a dead girl Kera who wanted Cole to help here get some information out Keras mother or stepmother it didnt say would put chemical cleansers or other toxic substances in Keras food or drinks By doing this she was slowly killing Kera and getting attention from family and friends for her daughters illness After Keras death the mother continued and was even trying to get Keras younger sister sick I think this was accuratly shown because the mothers need for attention was shown at the funeral where she looked happier and not very sad It was also shown through Keras tape when the mother poured the chemical in Keras bowl and told her to eat it and she also said Now dont say it tastes funny you know how I dont like that Overall I think this movie can help some psychologists think of the possibilities and not assume something so common For instance when Malcom first met Cole he right away assumed he had a mood disorder or schizophrenia
