Dr. Drea Letamendi, Ph.D.
Stories are a part of our psychological fabric, and the personal and emotionally charged connections we form with "faux friends" in film, TV, gaming, and comics can help harness essential insights. Dr. Letamendi will delve into the powerful phenomenon of "mediated others" and share how grit, emotional growth, and self-discovery are gained while facing multiple threats in today's world. The speaker will discuss how fiction and fandom in entertainment media can comfort anxieties, manage fears, and affirm hopes through healthy escapism, allowing our clients (and us) to flourish in times of crisis. Dr. Letamendi will provide participants with effective strategies for implementing compassionate self-care, cultivating belongingness, and increasing health consciousness for a happier and more fulfilling work-life identity.
