Psycho Logic Volume 1

Psycho Logic Volume 1

This is a compilation of contributions made to the We Have Issues podcast called Psycho Logic, with a new introduction explaining the concept. It basically looks at the overlap of clinical psychology with comics. I highly recommend visiting We Have Issues, and if you enjoy this show, the new installments will be there first!

In this volume:

Harley Quinn and the ethics of stress as a therapist

Psychopathy and is Batman a psychopath?

Harvey Dent and diagnostic approaches

Case Formulation and formulating Batman

Captain America – stressful life events, adjustment, culture shock and PTSD

The Hulk – what is ‘health’ and ‘illness’ and the stress-vulnerability model
