"No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul."
– Ingmar Bergman



Seminars for Mental Health Professionals

For mental health practitioners who want to learn how to use movies in their clinical work:

  • How a client's film experience can be utilized therapeutically.
  • What guidelines to give to clients.
  • What limitations to be aware of.
