No book has better combined daring self-disclosure and biting humor in describing a therapist’s own experience into therapy than Lori Gottlieb’s acclaimed Maybe You Should Talk to Someone. It’s currently being adapted as a television series with Eva Longoria and has spent months on The New York Times bestseller list. She’s also the writer of the wildly popular weekly advice column “Dear Therapist” for The Atlantic magazine, and a regular contributor to The New York Times. In her new book, Gottlieb follows the lives of four patients, along with a fifth—herself. Chronicling her experience as both clinician and patient, she reminds us of our shared humanity and the ways we grow in connection with others.
In this evening program, she’ll share selections from her book, discuss the importance of taking ownership of our stories in moving toward change, and talk about breaking the fourth wall, despite being a therapist, to reveal personal details of her experience as a patient.
