Everything you need to understand or teach Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb.
In Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, Los-Angeles based therapist Lori Gottlieb weaves together a deeply funny memoir with thought-provoking psychological analysis to capture the trials and joys of her profession. In this non-fiction work, we follow the journeys of several of Lori's patients: a rude, narcissistic TV show executive harboring a tragic secret, a lonely senior citizen planning to commit suicide when she turns 70, an alcoholic millennial, and a newlywed in her 40s diagnosed with terminal cancer. As Lori helps her patients overcome their fears and grow in unexpected ways, she too experiences the slow, laborious work of change. In this funny, honest, deeply insightful memoir, Gottlieb tackles among others, the themes of aging, loss, pain, blindness, fixedness, free will, transformation, connection, love, hope, resilience, and courage in the face of the unknown.
