In this episode… In this episode of An Unconventional Life, Dr. Suzana Flores speaks with Dr. Russell Strickland about the story of how she unexpectedly ended up in the comic book world as she recovered from pain and trauma. The author of “Untamed: The Psychology of Marvel’s Wolverine” shared how the X-Men character helped her turn pain into purpose, and consequently, through writing about her experiences, she has connected with people that resonated with her story of survival. Dr. Flores also discusses another book she wrote, “Facehooked,” which talks about the psychological effect of social media. She discovered many profound realizations about the younger generation’s dependence on social media, one of which is their utter discomfort in conversational pauses. Having the first name “Doctor” has opened up opportunities for Dr. Flores, and she’s prepared to seize some more.
