iTunes U which includes topics such as Health, Science, Business and Engineering. Perhaps of most interest to visitors to my blog would be the availability of material on depression, anxiety, sleep, dreams, behaviour and even meditation. The content is provided by a host of Universities and Colleges and other organizations and much of it is of a very good quality.
I recommend you use the iTunes U url which should open the iTunes software on your computer and then use the Power Search from the Quick Links section. You can tell the power search to just focus on iTunes U and then enter your keywords in the description such as depression, anxiety, behaviour or bipolar. I was surprised to see the results that got returned.
Ones that might be of interest to you (I am not recommending them, just highlighting the varied range available):-
Familial Mood Disorders by Natalie L. Rasgon (Movie) Depression and bipolar disorders can be passed down in families but are common in women. See what can be done to treat mood disorders and associated reproductive dysfunction.
Coping with Anxiety and Depression in Uncertain Times (Movie) The experience of psychological trauma is not an uncommon occurrence in today's society. Recent research indicates that severe psychological trauma can cause symptoms of persistent anxiety and depression.
Actually, if you do find ones that you recommend it would be great if you could let me know and I'll do the same. Perhaps together we can come up with a list of really useful resources for people like us.
