Self-help books

We would recommend the following psych self-help books for personal growth and healing.
In most cases, when someone decides that he/she wants to leave the past behind and get better, to learn more about the condition(s) leading to a particular state of mind is a highly recommended step. See below some book titles (in random order) therapists often prescribe to read for clients (if relevant) in addition to 1:1 sessions or group discussions.

    Movies for therapy

    we have put together a list of movies as tools for personal growth and development. As you all know movies tend to portray various life-situations sad or happy, dramatic and/or traumatic etc. Films with their unique interpretations on decision-making and coping, may serve a good base to evoke emotional reactions in the audience. Esentially, film therapy utilizes and works with the inner psych content of clients of the hidden self as they are asked to watch designated movies relating to their own issues with specific guidelines that they later discuss in therapeutic setting.
