I have officially joined the One Piece fandom! My brother finally convinced me to read the manga. Geek out with me and my brother and join my journey to read the manga. We talk about my impressions and geek out about our favorite jokes and characters. I also add my two cents on the mental health themes I noticed as I read.
Avatar the Last Airbender is one of my favorite cartoons, and I am rewatching it with my brother. We watch an episode and then discuss our favorite parts, random information we heard about the show, and the mental health themes that came up in the episode. To make fun for us and for you, we also try different types of tea and share our thoughts on them. If you are an Avatar fan or would like to watch it for the first time check out our videos!
Reframe and Re-enchant is a series I began on my other social media and now it's on YouTube!
The aim of the series is to provide mental health information and different ways we can geek out and take care of our mental health. So in the videos, I talk about different geeky things, what they teach about mental health, and tips that we can all use in our everyday life to take care of ourselves, overcome adversity, and thrive!
In this series, I often collaborate with other geek professionals (check the R&R tab) in an effort to show that there are geeky/nerdy mental health professionals in your area that you can reach out to. Follow @psych4geeks for weekly posts for this series. You can also follow the #reframeandreenchant to view the posts.
Grad school programs for mental health (Ph.D., PsyD, MFT, LCSW, etc.) usually do not offer classes on the business side of therapy. So if you are interested in opening up your own private practice or joining a group practice in the future we often have to depend on YouTube University... and even then it's not so helpful.
I contacted really awesome therapists who use geek culture in their therapy sessions and have their own practice. They share their experience, wisdom gained, and amazing tips with us!
Stay tuned for videos on this series. You can follow my channel (Psychology for Geeks) on YouTube, and also check out some of the other videos I have on there.
I think it is pretty clear by now that I love to collaborate with other geek professionals. I enjoy geeking out with others and talking about topics that are important to me and others.
I have been fortunate enough to be invited to be part of a few different podcasts, panels, and youtube videos. I made a playlist of all that stuff so you guys can have easy access to it.
