World Book Day: Mental Health Books We Love!

Washington Psychological Wellness celebrates World Book Day by promoting some of our favorite mental health books and resources!

 

Happy World Book Day!

The world has been collectively experiencing trauma a result of COVID-19. We, as mental health practionners are not immune. The past year has affected us like none other and we’re still learning how to deal with the mental and emotional effects not only for ourselves but our clients. 

As mental health professionals, it's important we lean toward each other, colloborate and share as many resources as we can during tiring times. That is exactly why our team at Washington Psychological Wellness put together this list of mental health resources and books we jointly love. 

Here are two books we love:

􀀀 “It Didn’t Start with You” by Mark Wolynn

􀀀 “The Body Keeps Score” by Bessel Can Der Kolk

Hello all! 👋 Check out my most recent blog post. 👇

Do you ever have difficulty getting to bed because your mind is on an endless to-do list? Do you think about all the bad things that could possibly happen tomorrow and how you might deal with those things? Do you ever find it difficult to be present or sit still because your mind is going a mile a minute? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be an over-thinker. Overthinking is a common phenomenon in our modern world and something that I see quite often in my psychotherapy practice in Pasadena, CA. Here are some common Q & As on this topic to help you gain a foundational understanding of overthinking:
