This is a fascinating Dutch documentary about the 46-year-old Kees, who is autistic and lives with his 80 year-old parents. Kees is anxious about the future when his parents would not be around anymore, because they are the only people he trusts dearly. He is now looking for a place where he can live with the support and setting that is similar to what his parents offer. If it is not possible, he would rather die. When I listen to Kees, I hear all the existential aspects of life as categorised by Yalom: death, freedom, isolation, and meaninglessness. He also talks about his choices in relation to how he deals with those aspects. Maybe Kees could benefit from the existential phenomenological psychotherapy. What do you think?  


  http://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2014/06/03/hoe-moet-het-straks-verder-met-kees/   這是一部關於46歲的 Kees 的紀錄片,他患有自閉症,目前與他80幾歲的父母住在一起。Kees很擔心如果有一天他的父母不在了,他該怎麼辦,因為他們是他唯一可以信任的人。為此他感到非常焦慮。現在,他正在尋找一個未來的住所,希望能夠找到一個類似於他父母現在住的地方,有類似的設備與空間,還能提供類似的生活與心理上的支持。如果找不到,他寧可安樂死。 當我聆聽 Kees 的時候,我聽到他提到 Yalom所提出的生活生存中的四個層面:死亡(death),隔絕, (isolation),無意義 (meaninglessness)和自由 (freedom)。在紀錄片裡還提到他在面對生活生存的這幾個層面時所做的選擇。如果他能夠接受存在主義現象學 心理治療 ,也許對他會有很大的幫助。你認為呢?
