“This is Your Origin Story” | Janina Scarlet | TEDxAkitaIntlU

Every day, people struggle, and so do superheroes. If you are struggling, remember that this is your hero’s journey. And if you are scared, this is you being brave. You matter. You make a difference. So, please, keep superheroing and don’t forget your cape. Dr. Scarlet is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, an award-winning author, and a full-time geek. A Ukrainian-born refugee, she survived Chernobyl radiation and persecution. She immigrated to the United States at the age of 12 with her family and later, inspired by the X-Men, developed Superhero Therapy to help patients with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Dr. Scarlet is the recipient of the Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award by the United Nations Association for her work on Superhero Therapy. She currently works as a lead trauma specialist at the Center for Stress and Anxiety Management in San Diego, CA. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
