Are you looking for a great summer read?
Suzanne Wachtel, LCSW, a therapist based in Boca Raton, Florida and one of our SWC faculty members, highly recommends “Maybe You Should Talk To Someone” by Lori Gottlieb.
Suzanne loves the book so much she is bringing a two-part interactive discussion series to SWC based on the author’s stories!
•Take the summer to finish the book.
•Then explore the humor, reality and life lessons in its pages with Suzanne in September.
What Will I Learn?
Our discussion will be inspired by the book and centered around the question: “How Does Self-Awareness Enrich Our Lives?”
Part 1: What Does Therapy Mean To You?
Part 2: Why Do We Repeat Patterns?
What is the book about?
From Lori Gottlieb’s website: https://lorigottlieb.com/
“Every year, nearly 30 million Americans sit on a therapist’s couch—and some of these patients are therapists. Lori Gottlieb tells us that despite her license and rigorous training, her most significant credential is that she’s a card-carrying member of the human race. “I know what it’s like to be a person,” she writes, as a crisis causes her world to come crashing down.
Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose office she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.
As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients’ lives—a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can’t stop hooking up with the wrong guys (even one from the waiting room)—she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.
With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb reveals our blind spots, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.
Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly revealing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.”
