      single greatest challenge we face as human
      beings..” Thelma Duffey

      you grieve and you grieve vicariously helps you
      with your own grief. “ Vadim Perleman

    • Different Uses for CT
      The Evocative Way
      Emotional responses to scenes bring issues to
      the conscious level. Clients can then work on
      concerns that they were unaware of or were
      avoiding. Any movie or movie scene that impacts a
      client can be used. Each client brings his/her
      own story to the viewing experience.

      characters. Movies are recommended depending on a clients needs.

      movies for emotional release. Recent research
