The Metaphorical Use of Vampire Films in Counseling
Priester, Paul E.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v3 n1 p68-77 May 2008
This article presents the movie "Interview With the Vampire" as an adjunctive resource in counseling. The themes of power, justification of violence, and transformation from innocence to maturity are particularly powerful for adolescent girls. A case study of a 13-year-old girl is presented as an example of how to use a specific film, "Interview With the Vampire," in counseling.
