Will Hunting Shrink

Posted by

will huntingGreat classic movie with an excellent cast with Matt Damon as main role. The movie got seven Academy Awards winning two of them for best screenplay and supporting actor (Robin Williams) and also winning a Golden Globe.

This great scene is a clear display of emotions such shame, guilt, anger and sadness.

So what is this scene about? Almost to the end of the movie, when the games are made, Will has found some direction, or at least he made some decisions, his counselor Dr. Sean has built trust in Will as a solid friendship has developed between the two characters, and the therapy is ending. Few more intimate details about childhood abuses are shared between the two, and that’s when Dr. Sean closes in to Will, invading his “safety” zone, looking him in the eyes, and telling him that what has happened is not his fault, over and over.

What is Dr. Sean leveraging on? I believe it is the guilt and the shame that victims who suffer abuses as children, especially from their parents buried within themselves, building an armor to protect themselves from the world around them. Keeping them safe, but distant from anyone.

and that’s when Dr. Sean closes in to Will, invading his “safety” zone.

The scene displays what a good psychologist is meant to do during therapy. Open up an old wound to provide an alternative proceeding to the mechanical defensive behavior reinforced through the years (or decades).  Great movie anyway.
