The experimental protocol presented in this paper aims to explore the potential agency of cinematic dispositive and moving images as part of the therapeutic process, in particular of the strategic approach, in supporting children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (HFASD Level 1, DSM-5) and their families. The protocol illustrates the methodological integration of the Strategic Psychotherapy approach, parent training, and the following audiovisual techniques: Therapeutic Filmmaking; Cinematherapy; Documentary Videotherapy. This methodological integration guarantees a narrative and patient-centered-approach, in which the participants (children and families) are actively involved in the creative therapeutic process. The research protocol described aims to (a) enhancing social, relational skills and self-representation in youths with ASD; (b) helping the family system to manage stress and to improve educational strategies to promote positive children’s behavior and psychological well-being.

Abstract

The experimental protocol presented in this paper aims to explore the potential agency of cinematic dispositive and moving images as part of the therapeutic process, in particular of the strategic approach, in supporting children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (HFASD Level 1, DSM-5) and their families. The protocol illustrates the methodological integration of the Strategic Psychotherapy approach, parent training, and the following audiovisual techniques: Therapeutic Filmmaking; Cinematherapy; Documentary Videotherapy. This methodological integration guarantees a narrative and patient-centered-approach, in which the participants (children and families) are actively involved in the creative therapeutic process. The research protocol described aims to (a) enhancing social, relational skills and self-representation in youths with ASD; (b) helping the family system to manage stress and to improve educational strategies to promote positive children’s behavior and psychological well-being.
