Ego Check with The Id DM

Dr. Janina Scarlet on Superhero Therapy and Personal Experience as a Refugee to the United States

March 21, 2017

I am joined this week by Dr. Janina Scarlet, and we talk about her upcoming book, Superhero Therapy - A Hero's Journey Through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Dr. Scarlet shares her fascinating origin story and how her personal journey with negative emotions led her to pursue a career in psychology. She describes how she has used various elements of geek culture in her work as a therapist providing care to Veterans and other individuals struggling with shame, anxiety, fear, and anxiety. She educates people about the purpose of therapy, and elaborates on several skills listed in her book. Near the end of the conversation, she shares her personal experience as a refugee to the United States, and how recent political events have been challenging. We also talk a bit of hockey before closing down!
