The movie Good Will Hunting is about a young kid named Will who had been living his whole life in the slums. He always had a very high I-Q but he struggled to find his true identity. He spent his times with his friends at the bar and at the batting cage. Will had an amazing talent at mathematics which he struggled to find. When he was almost arrested for attacking a police officer, a professor at MIT was able to save him because he had solved an equation that nobody else was able to solve, so he bailed him out of jail. But it was under the condition that he works with him for math every week and that he visits a therapist. He at first met with a few different therapist he didn’t  like them and he blew them off. Then he finally met this therapist named Sean. He blew him off to at first but Sean and the professor at MIT knew that he is a special kid , so Sean did not give up on him. He went to see Sean a few times and they got into a few altercations at first then they both started to click with each other.  After they begin to start clicking things start going well and Sean starts to share his deepest stories with Will. After Will’s friend Chuckie begins to talk to him and he tells him the gift he has and if he had the opportunity he did he wouldn’t waste it. He tells him his wish, he says  ¨That he’ll show up at Will’s house one day and find Will gone¨. After this Will does exactly what Chuckie says and finally uses his knowledge goes away to get him the job that he had always been looking for.One of my favorite scenes in the movie was when Will & His friend Chuckie were talking at the construction site & they had a conversation about Will & his life. This was a very good scene to me because that showed that Chuckie was a good friend and really cared about his best pal. He told him that he had all the knowledge in the world & that he was very smart. He also told Will that he would do anything to have the knowledge that he has, & that he would wait for the day to come when he goes to his house & he is not there. This part was influential to me because now a days we don’t have true friends like Chuckie, we don’t have too many friends who will uplift us to do the right thing most of the time it’s for the wrong things. This shows true friendship & it shows the type of friends that you should keep in your circle. I absolutely learned from this because this is how friends should be to friends to push them to do the right thing & sometimes we all need to question if the people who is really in our circle are true friends. Another One of my favorite parts was at the end when it shows that Will has finally comes to his scenes & leaves. I liked the part because it shows accomplishment, & after the whole movie & the stuff that Will had to go through to get to that point is what makes the ending so good. Will fought hard to get to the mindset that he got to at the end. In the beginning it was ruff for him & it left the audience to think will , Will ever overcome this obstacle. And when he put the note in Sean’s mailbox & when his friend pulled up , it was very touching because you can tell the movie was coming to an end & Will is going forward with his life. I can kind of relate to it only because I know the feeling that he has an  that all his friends have for him all the excitement. I can relate because when I was young I had the same feeling of accomplishing my goals. When I was in the 6th grade I won my first Championship for pop warner football. This meant a lot for me because I had been working hard all summer I fought through a few obstacles that year. I didn’t make weight for the team I wanted to really play for so I had to bump up a level to the peewee level. But through all the hard work everything was good, the team wind up going to the championship and we won and it meant the world winning that championship with my father because he coached my team that year. Psychotherapy is the treatment of mental disorder by psychological rather than medical means. Another name for it could be ¨Talk therapy¨.  It is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing. A person might need it because it can  be an important part of treatment for depression or bipolar disorder. A good therapist can help you cope with feelings, problem solve and change behavior patterns that may contribute to your symptoms. Most of today’s psychotherapy is brief and focused on your current thoughts, feelings and life issues. Focusing on the past can help explain things in your life, but focusing on the present can help you cope with the present and prepare for the future. You might see your therapist or counselor more often when you first begin working with them, and later, as you progress towards your goals, you might have appointments less often. Psychiatrists and other mental health professionals use several types of therapy. The choice of therapy type depends on the patient’s particular illness and circumstances and his/her preference. Therapists may combine elements from different approaches to best meet the needs of the person receiving treatment. And a good way to be successful with this therapy is to just be open and honest with it and follow the plan that you are upon the treatment for. Also you should follow through with any homework or work that you have from your counselor to fully go through with your plan for your treatment.I think Sean did fulfill his duties as being Will´s therapist because he did exactly what he was supposed to do. He helped Sean to past that stage where he didn’t know what he was going to do with his life. He helped him pushed pass all the anger and the bad thoughts out of his head and pushed him to do something good with his knowledge as he knew that he could. He helped him get passed the trauma of his childhood and he was able to help him. The best thing out of this is that Sean wasn´t just helping Will. Will was also able to help Sean with his problems also. Sean was able to open up to Will and tell him some of his biggest secrets and things that he didn’t tell just anybody. This worked out well because one person didn’t just get something good out of it, they both were able to get something out of each other and this helped them to put things passed them. This was a great learning experience not only for Will, but for Sean too. But even though they told each other there deepest stories even though this is a movie, it is unhealthy for patients to share personal feelings or thoughts with the therapist and intimate physical contact. They say this is not acceptable, appropriate or is it useful either. But I do think that this was a successful movement for Will because he was able to push passed his obstacles and was able to go on with his life and was able to be with the girl of his dreams.
