What is movie therapy? 

Movie therapy is a dynamic and innovative therapeutic approach that harnesses the power of film and storytelling to facilitate emotional healing and personal growth. It involves selection and analysis of movie scenes or characters that resonate with a client's experiences or struggles. By engaging with cinematic narratives, individuals can explore their own emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a safe and non-threatening manner. Movie therapy can be employed in various therapeutic settings, including individual counseling and coaching, group therapy, and even in educational or self-help contexts.
