“Choose Your Own Therapy Adventure: An Interactive Quest Through Acceptance And Commitment Therapy” is set to release on February 1, 2018 in the U.K., Little, Brown Publisher and should release in the U.S. shortly after. This is an interactive  fantasy self-help book, in which you (the reader) are the hero on an interactive quest to stop an evil sorceress from destroying the world. You might learn psychological coping skills along the way to help you better manage your anxiety, depression, and other difficult experiences.

You will gain friends and enemies along the way and your choices might either earn you points or cause you to lose points. You will need at least 50 points in order to be able to fight the sorceress. 
Take the quest and find out why you are the Chosen One.

    Hello! I found you thanks to The Mary Sue posting your articles on depression and anxiety as expressed in the Harry Potter universe. That was some great illustration! Glad I was able to find your site that way, too.

    Sincerely,
    Karina

    Greetings, Dr. Jamina!

    I stumbled across your site and I wanted to ask you a couple of questions.

    I am seeing if there is enough interest for me to start a Google+ community called Geek Media Theraou” I just started following you on Twitter so I still looking at some of my work, I hope you get back with me about this.

    The other question that I have is while I’m not a psychologist, what would you recommend the best way to query others in your field offering research about geek media therapy?

    I majored in criminal justice technology, and using superheroes, exedra, is something that I fell in love with!

    I look forward to hearing your advice.

    Emily

      HI Emily,
      so sorry that it took me so long to reply, I’ve been traveling a lot and haven’t had a lot of opportunities to check my messages. So glad you reached out. Have you started the Google + community yet? If so, add me, I’d love to be a part of it.
      Regarding queries, I think the best way is just to email people directly or to message them on Twitter.
      That’s really cool! Are you currently working in criminal justice?

      Janina
