Jedi Counsel Podcast 89 – Jessica Jones, PTSD, & Recovered Memories

Hello, Jedi Counsel listeners! After a recording hiatus (due to illness, travel, and general busy-ness), we’re back! In this episode, we discussed the first three episodes of Season 2 of Jessica Jones. First, we talked about the depiction of Jessica Jones as a person who is affected by posttraumatic stress disorder and alcohol use disorder. For more details, please check out our blog post and podcast episode about Season 1 of Jessica Jones. Secondly, we talked about the psychological science on hypnosis and recovered memories (this paper suggests that it’s harmful). For more about the science on memories, check out our episode on brain myths with cognitive psychologist, Dr. Rob Gordon. For more about Elizabeth Loftus’ work on memory, you can watch her TED Talk here. Finally, we concluded with our reactions to the phrase that The Whizzer says, “With great power comes great mental illness.”
