I'm Still Worthy: A Psychological Overview of MCU Thor in Therapy

About this Training

You would be hard-pressed to find a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who has experienced more loss and trauma than Thor. Within the MCU, we have watched Thor experience repeated betrayals, banishment, the loss of his family, the destruction of his home world, and the near-extinction of his people and culture, to name just a few. We also see Thor struggle with the serious emotional and mental impact of these events, and witness his journey to reclaim feelings of worth and purpose following events he perceives as personal failures. In this training we will look to provide an outline and analysis of the story and major mental health themes of Thor Odinson within the MCU, and how one may integrate these themes into a mental health setting.
