Web Sites

The Mayo Clinic  Mayoclinic.org      The Mayo Clinic site is a “gold Standard” in current information and treatment of physical and mental health problems.  If you follow the menu under “Patient Care and Information” there is a wealth of information that is research and professionally based.

The American Psychological Association     APA.org  The APA provides a whole public education section on current issues and information on mental health.

The American Psychiatric Association  Psychiatry.org  The “other” APA is the APA’s site that again provides a wealth of info and resources for anyone looking for research based and current mental health information.

Center for Positive Psychology ppc.as.upenn.edu  Martin Seligman (ironically the researcher who came up with the term “learned helplessness”) founded this hugely successful and VERY interesting centre at the UPenn.  The idea of Positive Psychology is a relatively new field o which therapeutic techniques and approaches are now based.  Worth a Visit.

BOOKS

The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook   J. Bourne, Harbinger Press  This book is a really useful one for anyone experiencing anxiety disorder or who wants to look at the basic concepts of stress and anxiety.  It could actually serve as a text boob for training Cognitive Behavioural Therapists in my opinion.  If you lookout it up on Amazon, you can use the “look inside” feature to see the Table of Contents.  The information is practical and it also reviews things such as the role of medication, nutrition and spirituality in dealing with Anxiety and related issues.

Documentaries

MINIMALISM: A Documentary About the Important Things  (2016) Netflix  As my blog post suggests, this is a very interesting look at happiness and peace through simplification of our lives and releasing ourselves from some of the constraints and pressures of the traditional “rat race”.  This is a useful and entertaining documentary.
