Emotional Wellness: Empowering People Through Challenges & Change

In 2008, an HBO drama entitled “In Treatment” debuted and ran through 2010. The program, about a psychologist and his patients, aired five nights a week. It won critical acclaim and numerous honors, including Emmy, Golden Globe and Writers Guild awards. There was clearly an audience for fictitious, meticulously scripted “therapy” sessions.

Today, an innovative nonfiction educational series entitled SESSIONS with DR. MARK LERNER is fostering emotional wellness. This production features a psychologist and his “clients” — people who have walked the journey from victim to survivor and, ultimately, thriver. 

“I want to rouse the SVOD world with real people sharing real stories that inform and inspire audiences.”

Dr. Mark Lerner, Psychologist, Executive Producer & Creator of SESSIONS with DR. MARK LERNER

Instead of scripted sessions portrayed by actors, distinguished “real people” enact a session from years past when they were grappling with a challenging experience. They then elucidate how they learned to harness their painful emotional energy and use it to overcome. 

Journalistic interviews are highly structured and “cognitive” — thought-based in nature. SESSIONS are prepared yet unscripted, facilitating the expression of authentic thoughts and feelings. Dr. Lerner’s “Session Notes,” immersed in this production, provide practical strategies and tools that foster emotional wellness.
