Mental health doodle- what IS mental health

Visual Doodles of CBT and Psychodynamic Treatment Models

It can be hard to hammer down what actually IS mental health or mental illness, and how treatments work.

Yesterday as we had…

Visual Key for Family Genograms

Genograms are like family trees, but have their own visual language so the complexity of relationships and intergenerationally transmitted issues can be concisely represented. This feels 100% up my alley so I’m really looking forward to the class I have on it this term.

Sketchnotes in Grad School

During my second year of study to earn a Masters in Counseling Psychology I had to take a class called Psychopathology. At most schools, this is the class where you memorize DSM-V, how to diagnose different mental illnesses, and form treatment plans.

mindfulness bullet journal layout

Mindfulness Bullet Journal Layout – Minimalist Printable Version

I’ve been slowly revamping some of my bullet journal layouts in the last few months. I’m still loving the content, but finding bullet journaling is more fun and less overwhelming for most people when putting together a layout doesn’t require a large amount of time just to prepare a page to begin journaling. Instead, I’ve been focusing…
