The use of popular films as catalysts in the psychotherapeutic process has gained increasing support in recent years. Accompanied by informed and sensitive therapeutic counseling, films can help clients get in touch with repressed emotions, find inspiration in the midst of despair, and understand the problems of others. But how can a therapist know when it is appropriate to assign a film? Which films have therapeutic punch? Where should the discussion focus after a client has seen a particular film?
Rent Two Films and Let's Talk in the Morning answers these questions and many more. It provides friendly guidance and detailed information on every aspect of using films as tools in therapy, including:
- Techniques for using video assignments to enhance traditional therapy
- Concise descriptions of more than 100 popular films available on video
- Suggestions for using each film to meet specific therapy needs
- A quick-reference list of hundreds of films categorized by presenting problem
- Numerous examples of clients who have gained insights from film therapy and how these successes were achieved
- Ways to use films as powerful therapeutic metaphors
