Do I need to have a certificate or certification in Cinema Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Positive Psychology, etc. in order to practice these approaches?

The general answer to this question is if you are licensed as a psychologist, MFT, social worker, counselor, psychiatrist, etc., you need to practice within your scope of practice and your scope of expertise as determined by the type of license you have, your education, supervised experience or clinical experience. Generally, Cinema Therapy, Somatic Therapy, etc. are not any different than practicing CBT or psychoanalysis. While they do not require certification, you need to have education and training. It is always good to check with your professional association or your licensing board for additional information.
