BT12 Short Course 04 Using Movies in Ericksonian Therapy Daniel Bass, Dipl. Psych
Movies are complex multisensory stories reflecting a specific world. They transport messages and solutions in order to provide the viewer with the possibility of identifying with the movie characters, get absorbed in it, empathize, recognize consciously or subconsciously one’s own central topics in life. They provide the possibility of being catalysts for developmental processes that can be used in psychotherapy. In this presentation participants will learn about the processes of watching movies and the transfer into therapy.
- Describe several techniques of how movies can be used to elicit therapeutic processes.
- Describe a method of how therapists can identify and apply therapeutically useful movies.
