    June Salin and Dr. Monique Garcia

    Manadoob is an inquiry-based, social, and emotional learning system that guides each child to design a life of self-esteem, empathy, and creative expression. Through the use of story, craft and individualized interpretation, the characters — both human and animal — celebrate diversity and inclusion instilling a sense of belonging in all children while creating a non-threatening environment in which they can share and explore.

    About June Salin

    Moving from advertising agency experience to the University of Southern California guiding their involvement in film and television, June concurrently earned her master’s degree in mass communications and then started Salin Associates providing global production resources for international commercial and film production. After creating the documentary “Kids & Animals-A Healing Partnership,” the vision for creating Manadoob, a learning system devoted to nourishing self-empowerment and self-esteem in children became clear. She is also the Founder and President of the nonprofit Prepare Kids for Life.

      Stories Matter: Building Resilience, Consciousness,
      and Empathy through Entertainment Media

      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. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

      1. Understand the benefits of media use related to emotional processing, self-awareness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
      2. Explain the parasocial engagement model and how personal development is influenced through storytelling.
      3. Identify 2 - 3 approaches that can be utilized to reduce the effects of trauma (war, global, pandemic, vicarious trauma, etc.) through a shared, collective liberation model.

      Dr. Drea Letamendi, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist, trainer, performance coach, and entertainment media consultant. Dr. Letamendi currently serves as the Director of Resilience at UCLA, where she works in the areas of empathy and resilience building, crisis-response, and suicide prevention. Dr. Drea is a TEDx speaker, the designated psychological consultant for the media companies Fandom and Screen Junkies, and has published several articles about the psychology of characters in Marvel, DC, and other pop culture franchises. Her work on the intersections of pop culture and psychological science have been featured in the Atlantic, the Guardian, Vanity Fair, the Los Angeles Times, and on Disney+.
