Judyth Piazza Interviews Doctoral Student About Turning Her Dissertation Into A Documentary

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Doctoral Student Aspires To Turn Dissertation Into Documentary: Bright Lights, Dark Shadows: An Integrative Literature Review Of The Psychological Consequences Of Celebrity And Fame For Entertainers [Includes Athletes]


Mimi is currently seeking an avenue to turn her dissertation into a documentary.  Her aspiration is to uncover the shadow side of the entertainment industry and address the unique stressors those in the industry face.  The shadow is anything held within the unconscious [personal and collective shadow], and is the pink elephant that is not discussed.  By bringing forth the shadow into conscious awareness it can be acknowledge, discussed, and integrated.  


The documentary will encourage Entertainers and Athletes to share their subjective reality regarding unique stressors encountered from working in the industry [unique stressors are outline in dissertation]. 


Currently there is a petition to develop a new division within the psychology industry called: Entertainment Psychology.  Mimi, and steering committee - Dr. D. Schroerlucke, Dr. R. Carolan, Dr. B. Welch, are seeking support and signatures.  If anyone is interested in reading more about the petition and viewing the website go to:
