Description of how films can be healing focusing on: – the origins and theory of Cinema Therapy and Film/Video-Based Therapy – Bonnie Harnden’s research on the regulating effects of beauty and awe, – the experience of catharsis in film and how this can lead to deeper emotional work, – the experience of insights from film due to identification with the character, – the explanation of Robert Landy’s Role Theory and how it relates to the healing impact of films, – and finally how one can create action plans from the inspiration behind films. Description of how parents can build secure  attachment through attuning to children’s interests in films/TV/YouTube, and how one can learn more about your child through what characters they strongly identify with/love. Within this, an explanation of dramatic projection and the therapeutic mechanisms behind dramatic projection.
