Does honor still have a place in society? How do you practice radical acceptance?

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright are diving into the psychology of a hero through Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. They take a look at Frodo’s honor and radical acceptance as he journeys to destroy the One Ring. Jonathan shares eight examples of Frodo and the psychology of honor. Alan shares many tidbits about the filmmaking craft of the trilogy and why he thinks they’re probably the best films ever made. There’s a lot of giddy, nerdy energy.

Our very first video we ever made was about Frodo! But we had a lot more to say about him, so we decided to give him another episode. Watch the first one here:
