psychology notes.

This site was originally created in 2009 as a virtual repository for all of the various psychology and therapy-related things (quotes, articles, videos, music, pictures) I came across both online and in my work as a psychotherapist. It has morphed into something slightly different in the past four years, and is now perhaps slightly more outward facing, but is still at heart a place for me to collect and share things related to the life of the mind.

Currently reading, and highly recommended (especially for any artists/writers out there).

Takes on, and triumphs over, the long-standing cultural myth that therapy and/or psych medications somehow hinder the creative process in individuals. It does so with essay after intelligent essay from working poets who have been in treatment of one form or another, talking about how psychiatric treatment (for everything from depression to schizophrenia) has actually helped their writing rather than hindered or lessened it in any way.
