The Movie Review requires the student to interact with the content of the movie in a way that allows for an understanding of the impact that movies can have on the therapeutic process. Please start with a title. You should adhere to the following format in completing your Movie Reviews:
Give your impression of the movie with only the briefest description of the plot. Resist the urge to retell the whole plot of the movie, instead sharing the scenes that had the greatest impact on your thinking or the most potential for use within the therapeutic process. What aspects of the movie should the viewer look for if they have not seen the movie and what aspects/scenes do you feel warrant further reflection and why? This section should be at least 600 words in length.
Having noted the scenes that have value for use in the therapeutic process, what is the specific value that you see for use in the counseling process? For example, if you observe emotional outbursts, angry tirades, attempts at connection, empathic listening, etcâ€¦ point out the scene and the way in which it could be used to enhance your clientâ€™s understanding of the skill/technique you are attempting to teach. How would you use this scene to make an emotional, cognitive, or spiritual connection? What is your rationale for choosing this scene? This section should be at least 600 words in length.
How did you connect with the movie on a personal level? How did it confirm or challenge some of your perceptions of Child/Adolescent Trauma and its treatment? How will you utilize this information personally? This section should be at least 600 words in length.
