Why Cinema Therapy?

About 4 years ago I completed my certification in Cinema Therapy. Cinema therapy uses the experience of getting lost in a film as a means to examine and experience themes and roles as part of individual psychotherapy. Obviously good movies engage and entertain us. Sometimes it helps to see another person go through struggles that resemble our own but that we can view from afar. A film used therapeutically can move a person towards greater insight and self-compassion.
