#25: Guest: Dr. Janina Scarlet, psychologist, and fellow Geek Therapist. Janina starts things off by providing a crash course on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a form of cognitive behavior therapy that she refers to as a “superhero manual.” Josué and Janina then talk about how to use fantasy narratives in therapy through an ACT framework. We talk Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Hunger Games, books vs. movies, and more.
