Ep.13 catching up, Character Alignments, narrative therapy

We’ve been gone for a whole month, we are totally sorry.  Yes, it’s Kat’s fault, due to overwhelming work schedules and crisis, as well as getting very sick and then injured, October was just not a good month. But here it is lucky number 13. Lea and Kat discuss the neutral characters from Marvel and DC.  Kat explains how a character’s alignment help her clients in discussing some of their past traumas utilizing  a  modality of narrative therapy in which she will have her clients externalize their problems from themselves by creating comic versions of themselves and personifying their issues […]

Finally ep. 12 NYComic Con

This is the episode before NYCC.  Both Leah and Kat have been going for years, and they will be attending again.  There will be, of course, a NYCC exclusive episode discussing family’s who attend conventions, as well family’s who cosplay together.  The plan, maybe speak to family’s on Sunday, which used to be called Family Day.

Apps in therapy

I think I should preface this by saying in no way should any of these apps be used without therapy.  These are not ways to diagnose or treat alone, but in conjunction with mental health professionals. https://www.codetherapyfilm.com/ Code therapy is a 15 minute documentary that discusses depression.  Discussing that depression is the second largest cause of disability in the world and then discussing apps that can be used to help those who are suffering from depression. http://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/top-10-mental-health-apps/slideshow/2608/ . The top 10 mental health apps that are discussed during the podcast.  Kat talks about her use of Breath 2 Relax and […]

Ep. 09 What is Sarahah, PTSD in comics and real life.

We talk about the new social media app, Sarahah.  Kat makes fun of the name, because she can’t say it.  Lea talks about her use in it.  The premise isn’t a bad idea, especially when we are discussing the implications it has in the work force, but it should have been left as an individual application for companies to decide to use to help strengthen the weak links, or build moral by people being able to discuss the strengths of their co-worker anonymously.  But what  it is is a social media app where people tear apart and insult their “friends” […]

ep. 07 Finding yourself in pop culture and Ghost hunting

Kat got to explore one of her fandoms, geeky likes, nerd like passions… whatever you want to call it… But she went to see Eastern State Penitentiary.  It is a jail that was built in 1829 and closed in 1971.  This did pique Kat’s love of history (especially haunted history) and some psychological aspects in learning that when the prison first opened everyone was brought in to single cells with hoods on their heads so no one knew who they were, and their exercise yard was attached to their cells….individual exercise yards. Imagine doing 15 years of solitary confinement,  because […]

ep.06 Family of choice vs. Family of origin

Family of origin are the people who we are born into, or marry into.  While Family of Choice are the people that we choose to have involved in out lives.  These people will become like siblings, uncles, aunts or even surrogate parents for us. In fiction family of choice is often used to help create a family with people that they have more in common with, especially when the main character has developed some type of supernatural powers.  The new family share similar powers or secrets. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FamilyOfChoice Please follow and like us:

Level 60 Bikini Virgin Killer Sweater

Why when I play a female fighter or wizard or ranger or whatever when I play a video game the higher level my character is the less armor my character seems to be wearing.   My armor class is higher, that is cool, but it looks like I’m riding through Azeroth naked, or in a bikini. But when you pick up the armor in any dungeon, it will look like a really cool breast plate, or chain mail pants and when you put it on it’s like a loincloth.   Is this what guys are looking for? Anyway these costumes are not […]

Trauma Porn & new home tech

Starting off, we are apologizing for Lea & Kat sounding very congested, as tree sex attempts to kill them by hindering their breathing. Kat gets to gush about her new computer and software she is using to record and edit with (thanks Shannon.) Because new tech is always fun to talk about, and gush about, and get and play with. Why are people so fascinated by watching bad things happen?  As a society when there is a car accident we slow down to see what is going on, to see the chaos, the carnage, we pray that the people are […]

Is it really Video Game Addiction?

It seems many people believe they have a family member or loved one who is addicted to video games.  Are they really?  Are video games as bad as people think they are or is video game addiction just a new psychological buzz word.  This episode Lea and Kat discuss Video Game addiction; is it a diagnosis? What are the criteria? How did it first start? How can it be treated? And, how can it be prevented? This episode is very heavy and loaded with some history, some facts, and diagnostic criteria.  This episode is also a little longer than we […]
