Superhero Therapy: Helping Clients Cope With Ongoing Global Trauma

About the Course:

In the light of the recent global events – wars, violence, the ongoing pandemic, and the rapidly rising mental health crisis, we need to make mental health accessible and relatable. People all across the world are struggling with loneliness and PTSD and yet most either don’t know how to process their traumatic experiences or have been shamed for trying. Many teens and adults turn to TV shows, comic books, movies, and video games initially to escape their emotional pain, only to later form meaningful social connections through these avenues.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, Superhero Therapy: Helping Clients Cope With Ongoing Global Trauma created by Janina Scarlet, PhD in 2022.

Publication Date:

1st Edition Aug 2022
