What can depictions of psychotherapy on screen teach us about ourselves?
ã€€Inã€€Eavesdropping, a selection of contributions from internationally-based film consultants, practicing psychotherapists and interdisciplinary scholars investigate the curious dynamics that occur when films and television programmes attempt to portray the psychotherapist, and the complexities of psychotherapy, for popular audiences.
ã€€The book evaluates the potential mismatch between the onscreen psychotherapist, whose raison d'Ãªtre is to entertain and engage global audiences, and the professional, real-life counterpart, who becomes intimately involved with the dramas of their patients.ã€€ While several contributors conclude that actual psychotherapy, and the way psychotherapists and their clients grapple with notions of fantasy and reality, would make a rather poor show,ã€€Eavesdroppingã€€demonstrates the importance of psychotherapy and psychotherapists on-screen in assisting us to wrestle with the discomfort - and humour - of our lives.
ã€€Offering a unique insight into perceptions of psychotherapy,ã€€Eavesdroppingã€€will be essential and insightful reading for analytical psychologists, psychoanalysts, academics and students of depth psychology, film and television studies, media studies and literature, as well
