VideoSense in therapy
VideoSense adds significant opportunities to therapy (group work or individual work):
- Familiarity with the client's world, seeing his physical environment, the characters in his life
- Ventilation while staying in reality and not only in the therapy room
- Examining the client's point of view
- Possibility to create motivation for a change: changing point of view, creating contact in a matter of conflict, new discourse or confrontation, new narrative.
- The process is a very empowering experience.
VideoSense is a great way for expressing inner emotions by finding evidence to these feelings in reality. When we find this evidence in the world, our feelings are documented and validated, and so they are real. When we observe the materials the client can speak about this validation and its meanings and start dealing with these emotions.
This process of filming can demonstrate to the therapist exactly how his clients see, hear and experience the stimuli that the world sends them. How do they translate them? How do they affect them? How do they touch them emotionally?
VideoSence uses the client's awareness to the camera to motivate change.
Clients know that they need to take action because they are filming or being filmed and it encourages them to do something new: to create, to confront, to be active in their reality, and to express themselves in a way they wouldn't do so if there wasn't a video camera present. They are filming their reality, feelings, relationships, the way they see, hear and feel the world. Being active enables movement and usually creates a new motivation for a change or a new point of view.
