Abstract

This qualitative inquiry describes the results of a formative (pilot-test) evaluation of a Cinematherapy Activity Manual for the film “The Maze Runner”. The Cinematherapy Activity Manual is the creation of a second-year student expressive therapy project. The Activity Manual includes a variety of creative activities specifically designed to provide youth participants who watch the film with a safe outlet to express themselves as they reflect on the characters and events in the story analogous to those in the own lives.
