Netflix documentary about Jonah Hill and his therapist: do you see any red flags?
A new documentary popped up in my Netflix feed about a celebrity (Jonah hill) and his therapist. I read some reviews and alarm bells went off at phrases like:
- therapist talking about ‘life force’ and ‘The Tools’.
- quotes to the effect of ‘these tools can help everyone’(simplistic/totalistic?)
- ‘friendship’ between Shultz and his psychiatrist/therapist (unprofessional boundaries?)
- therapist being directive and ‘jokingly’ saying ‘do as I say’ (potential coercion/ undue influence over client?)
- very long time in therapy, five years. (Sounds pretty lucrative for the practitioner to keep someone coming back?)
What are your thoughts?
Here’s an example of a more glowing review I’ve seen of the documentary and the therapist’s methods: [amp.smh.com.au
Here’s one article that raises some concerns: [www.vice.com
