Two of my favorite past times are reading and writing. My favorite subjects are mental health and natural health remedies, which includes a wide
array of modalities including nutrition and cinema therapy.
Since I love to write, I author books, research, and a number of blogs.
I write on a variety of topics, including research, my education and professional and personal experience with natural remedies for mental health.
Thousands of people read my blogs. Here are some reasons why you should too ...
You don't have time to read the 300+ psychological and medical studies released by journals each week - but you do
deserve to know what studies matter to your personal health
The real scoop - unbiased health information (the blogs do not accept any advertisements)
Cutting edge information on emotional wellness; topics related to the most commons reasons people consider
therapy, how to choose a therapist, why psychotherapy is effective, and other topics related to emotional health
New nutrition and lifestyle information - My background and education in psychology and medicine
helps you make the right choices for your optimal health
Dr. Fredricks' Natural Mental Health Blog
My Natural Mental Health Blog is a good way to find out the latest information on mental health. I discuss both traditional and alternative
therapies that are currently being researched. I'm always astounded at the studies that are published in medical journals!
I read the latest studies in the medical journals on a daily basis, looking for what's new in natural therapies and mental health.
I update my news blog regularly - sometimes everyday if there's something that seems newsworthy.
Cinema therapy, often called "film therapy" or "movie therapy," is a process where a therapist prescribes movies to help their patient explore their psyches.
Although few therapists actually center their entire practice around cinema therapy, movies have long been a tool to help those in therapy
achieve their goals. For example, I try to recommend a movie for my clients the majority of the time. Additionally, I invite them to discuss
movies that have meaning to them.
My Cinema Therapy Blog contains hundreds of movies that I have found to have therapeutic value.
