Films are a method to entertain and relax people of all ages. They make us laugh, cry, feel happy and sad, and they fascinate us. Films are also capable of describing human hopes and fears, thus stimulating a better understanding of ourselves and our problems.
Cinema-therapy is a specific methodology that uses emotional evocation stimulated by watching films in order to organize new affective and relational competences.
CINEMA-THERAPY takes place in groups and its objective is to design a path of personal evolution and growth that goes beyond the simple activity of watching a film.
At least 7 participants, together with a psychotherapist, including a minimum of 8 weekly 1.5-hour meetings. Each meeting involves watching a film as well as psychological activities focusing on exploring each individual’s past experiences evoked by the story told in the film.
