Get Reel by Nancy Mramor Kajuth, Ph.D.

While you are enjoying fascinating dramas, comedies, reality shows, movies, the Internet and print publications, you are taking in ideas and absorbing beliefs that are below the level of the conscious mind.

In 2014, the average American spent five hours per day watching television. While the media is not necessarily representing reality, unconsciously the media is influencing viewers’ thoughts, actions and self-image.

For more than 25 years, media expert and TV psychologist Nancy Mramor Kajuth, Ph.D., has been researching the effects of media. In her new book, “Get Reel: Produce Your Own Life,” she empowers readers to take control of their lives by breaking free from the hynponitc trance that TV, movies and the Internet can create by exchanging unconscious viewing for media watching skills that can produce a more authentic life.

Dr. Mramor Kajuth provides an entertaining behind-the-scenes look at how to enjoy media by using conscious viewing skills that will in turn offer the ability to live a more authentic and happy life. With her professional advice, quizzes, humorous stories and other interactive activities throughout the book, readers will be able to enjoy interacting with media while avoiding the unconscious side effects that can occur.

“While you are enjoying fascinating dramas, comedies, reality shows, movies, the Internet and print publications, you are taking in ideas and absorbing beliefs that are below the level of the conscious mind,” Dr. Mramor Kajuth said. “Many of those ideas are helpful, entertaining and educational. Others are not.”
