From the author

This book describes a new effective approach to work with clients which is based on watching any audiovisual series, e.g. films, cartoons, clips, shows. This is a completely new method that I developed for nine years.

As a big fan of film therapy, I have always strived to make the best use of films in my work. To do this, I studied all the available literature, different approaches and methods. I tried different approaches in the use of cinema in counselling, training and therapeutic work. Gradually, the true essence of film therapy, its strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and limitations were revealed to me more and more.

Having accumulated enough experience, I developed a new approach that significantly increases the effectiveness and expands the possibility of using films in a psychologist’s work. This approach is described in this book. Directed film therapy is useful in therapeutic, training, counselling and coaching work with clients.
