These may be a bit random, just would like to share a few I’ve come to learn about over the years, whether you are a mental health provider or individual. These resources will not serve as a cure but are likely to be helpful in the preliminary study of certain psychological conditions, or methods to offer psychological relief. If you are experiencing acute psychological distress, please schedule an appointment with a mental health professional, or speak with your primary care provider for a referral to therapy.

 

For depression and bipolar disorder, among other conditions, check out Black Dog Institute

Activating the soothing and compassionate mind (Paul Gilbert)

For more self-compassion resources (Kristen Neff)

About the Book

 

For “body-focused repetitive behaviors” (e.g. hair-pulling, skin-picking)

http://www.bfrb.org/

 

For relationships (John Gottman)

The Four Horsemen: The Antidotes

 

For working with intense emotions (Tara Brach)

Working With Difficulties: The Blessings of RAIN

 

For anxiety (note, although some may consider this a sort of joke, this little website will probably make you laugh and teach you a good deal about the state of the ‘busy mind’)

I’m definitely forgetting some, but that’s enough for now. If you have a favorite psychology-related website, please share!
