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/ .

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.

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.

Anyway these costumes are not […]
