Pinterest, the social network that captured the attention of the users during 2012 , no longer a simple system to share fun photos, apparel and wish lists to become a tool of psychological therapy.

According to PSFK , a group of therapists will find many possibilities in the treatment of their patients. The therapy is also installed in the digital age. This is supplemented with photos the inability of some of them to communicate.

Pinterest, pantalla

If you ask me, I would never have thought of using Pinterest as a method to improve mental health. On the contrary, I think a social network as addictive as collector and sometimes unattainable, but I can not associate it with some form of frustration.

However, while a platform Pinterest is generally known for his pictures of clothing, food, accessories and design objects, different planks that make up could have "a deeper sense in the context of a therapy session." Or at least that some psychiatrists say.

Crystal Rice, couples therapy specialist in Maryland, is based on the images shared on Pinterest their patients to try to understand their emotional state. The appointment once a week and, between sessions, is charged with spying boards, of which extracts tracks that considered useful.

According to Ryce, patients are not always able to verbally express their moods, and images on Pinterest compensate the lack of his speech. The therapist explains that shared images provide an alternative and intuitive to detect certain emotions. It's like putting a child in kindergarten to draw their family, put thread to get stranded.

The system and format Pinterest, being so simple, easy to paticipación of patients and act as a kind of portrait, an ideal tool to complement the first sessions of therapy.

Will this new therapist asks his patients to open a Pinterest account whenever they come to her? How accurate is the diagnosis from a lot of images that have more to do with a kind of personal aesthetic?

Moreover, many users have expressed that they create boards on Pinterest is a relaxing activity and, in that sense, therapeutic. What do you think? Visual Introspection last minute, now is.
