I’m still recovering from what may or may not be COVID-19, so I don’t have a regular Sciency Words post for you today. But during the time I’ve been sick, I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube, and I discovered a YouTube channel that I wanted to share. It’s called Cinema Therapy.
It’s hosted by a professional filmmaker and a behavioral psychologist. The two of them watch movies together and talk about the psychological truths (and falsehoods) expressed by those movies. I’ve especially enjoyed their analyses of The Lord of the Rings films, and this episode on Frodo Baggins and radical acceptance was really helpful for me in my current situation.
And hey, psychology is a scientific field. Radical acceptance is a term used in that scientific field. So there’s your Sciency Word for the week!
