MEET DR. KNOW AND HER DOG DUKE!
AUTHOR, PSYCHOLOGIST & BLOGGER
After two years and thousands of posts later, Doctor Know developed a full understanding of the psychological needs and requirements of teens and young adults around the globe. Doctor Know’s vision was to create a book not about illness, but understanding the workings of thought.
This is not a book about illness. It does not announce to the world,
“Hey, look at me, I have social anxiety!” It is a book that says,
I AM LEARNING ABOUT THE PHILOSOPHY OF THOUGHT AND IT IS HELPFUL. IT HELPS ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW I THINK AND, AS A RESULT HOW I FEEL
THE ESSENCE OF KNOWING
Is taken from the school of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, founded by Dr Aaron Beck. It is recognised as a highly effective, evidence-based, therapeutic approach, for the treatment of mood disorders; — depression, anxiety and overall dissatisfaction with life.
Utilising this method will help those of you with diagnosed conditions. It will also be both preventative and remedial for those of you who experience life as just too difficult.
The tone of Knowing is scientific and logic-based. It is practical, educational and informative, with humour and fabulous illustrations. So enjoy and learn and have a laugh. I do everyday
Her goal was to teach resilience and ways of adapting to a rapidly changing world. Following the words of Socrates she focuses on the what, when and how of our thinking, to better understand the emotional world.
Why are we here?
Why am I alive?
Why am I like this?
Why can’t I be like those people?
WHY ME? WHY? WHY? WHY?
ANSWER: NO REASON. IT JUST IS. ADAPT!
I choose not to delve into the “Why?” question because in my experience it often leads down a path that goes everywhere and nowhere.
