Healing Through Movies

Understanding the forms of abuse, trauma or control as shown visually through movies. Some movies are helpful to watch in order to understand the more subtle /covert (psychological) forms of abuse that affect your mind rather than your body as compared to the overt forms like physical and sexual abuse.

One of the first movies I watched regarding abuse that I could relate to was “Fear” with a young Reese Witherspoon. I had been married for 20+ years by this stage and from this movie I realized the extent of control I was under and that I was with a man who was dangerous and was never going to ‘let me go’ and that I was confusing love with fear.

This movie woke me up and started me on the process of escaping, recovery and healing.
