Summer Book Club Discussion


Co-sponsored by the Stanford Faculty Staff Help Center

You are invited to join us for a virtual summer book club to discuss thoughts raised by the book: Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed, by Lori Gottlieb.

In this entertaining and moving memoir by celebrated psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb, you will get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at both sides of the therapy couch. Gottlieb relates her sessions with four patients in scenes that explore the breadth of the human experience, from wit and exasperation to heartbreak and inspiration. At the same time, she chronicles her own experience in therapy as she works through the pain of an ugly break-up. Gottlieb’s book is a compelling read, with stories that encourage us to reflect and relate. In addition to enjoying an intriguing plot, we learn stories that reveal resilience.

Please read the book on your own in advance and join us online for discussion facilitated by the Stanford Faculty Staff Help Center.
