  • Photos in therapy and education  The aim of phototherapy is to use photos and photographing to enhance the person's self awareness, to support the personal growth and psychical harmony and to help the person to get through the crisis in life. By using photos in therapy it is possible to reach such matters that can not be reached with words, and also to enliven memory and to create alternative means for analyzing life.  Methods of the phototherapy include viewing biographical photos, viewing associative and symbolic photos and taking new photos.  These methods may be widely applied in individual and group work sessions depending on the aims of the educational or therapeutic session or the needs of the participants.
