“false news stories, often of a sensational nature, created to be widely shared or distributed for the purpose of generating revenue”

This accessible video introduces you to concept of fake news, from both a therapeutic and every day perspective.  Led by professional and accredited therapists who have an interest in raising awareness and understanding of emotional wellbeing.

This is not a lesson or a tutorial but it is something slightly different.  It is more of a conversation and reflections by therapists around emotions and the importance to recognise and work with your emotions to help with your personal wellbeing.

You can listen to it all at once, or each step at a time, you can come back to it time and again, when it suits you.  You can watch it with friends, as part of a class tutorial or just for your own personal interest and curiosity.

You will find out about:

  • what fake news/conspiracy is
  • how we respond to it
  • learning how to manage our responses by understanding where they come from
