This was a fun one for me. In this episode, I do a "deep dive" into Pokemon Go and mental health. I talk about why the game is so effective and addicting as well as how that can be used in a very real way to combat mental health issues. I also address one particular way that it could cause distress for some. Please continue the conversation on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych and let me know your thoughts!
This episode fought back! My computer crashed when I recorded it the first time and I lost everything. Oh well. No biggie. Re-recorded it for you here and I don't mind at all because the questions were so great! Here's what we cover:
-Why don't my friends notice when I don't show up?
-How can I help my patients who seem traumatized from their medical treatment?
-Is it worth it to keep trying when I'm so depressed?
As always you can send me your questions on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych or through email at email@example.com
I'm not sick anymore! Yayyyy! This is another Q&A episode with some of my favorite questions yet. Don't forget to check the new merch at: http://duffthepsych.com
Here are the questions covered:
-Is it ever smart to just avoid situations that might trigger anxiety?
-How can I help a teen with a rough upbringing?
-Are my repressed memories of abuse real?
I'm sick! Therefore I am going to save my voice and skip the Q & A this week. Instead, I have a treat for you. This is a full chapter from my upcoming audiobook for Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression. It is chapter 8 entitled Be Nice To The Future You. I talk all about setting yourself for success instead of self-sabotaging like usual.
