Warren, Jane; Stech, Matt; Douglas, Kristin; Lambert, Serena
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v5 n3 p228-242 2010
Self-reflection, creativity, and experiential education are effective teaching strategies for counselor educators. Understanding and conceptualizing client cases can feel overwhelming for counselors-in-training. This article describes how the process of case conceptualization can be enhanced through the use of film. A case example is provided of how one student was able to creatively conceptualize a client through the use of film. The student's creation-- The Addiction Web--is a serendipitous and visual diagram illustrating a comprehensive and compassionate understanding of a client with complex addiction issues.
