About Dr. Duff
My name is Dr. Robert Duff. I’m a psychologist from Southern California and I think that the field of mental health has a big problem. It is scary and intimidating. Why? When you are already struggling with emotional difficulties, the last thing that you need is some huge psychobabble manual thrown at you. My specialty is taking complex psychological issues and breaking them down into plain language.
In this book I take the information, tips, and insights that I have gained as a psychologist and translate them into language that doesn’t suck. This is the self-help book for people that don’t usually like self-help books.
The Hardcore Self Help podcast is a weekly podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS.

The Cost of Complication
In January of 2017, I did a TEDx talk on my personal experience with mental illness, and how a near tragedy in my family led me to write my books and build the Duff the Psych brand. If you want to know more about my personal life and how it has affected what I do professionally, check it out on YouTube.
