Longer than a psychologist he has been a movie – and with the golden age of television TV-Show – geek. He is interested in psychology in pop culture and the use of pop culture in psychotherapy, which is why he writes (charakterneurosen.blogspot.de) and talks (charakterneurosen.podcaster.de) about it as much as possible.
