What we're about

This is a group for psychotherapists interested in reading thoughtful, stimulating books with psychological themes. The purpose of the group is to meet like-minded professionals in our neighborhood and take some time to read excellent, mind-expanding literature which will stimulate discussion about ourselves and our work with patients.
Our first book will be Lost Connections by Johann Hari. Hari's previous best-selling book, Chasing the Scream, transformed the global debate about addiction. In Lost Connections, he describes how he was prescribed anti-depressants as a teenager but later became disillusioned with the theory of "chemical imbalance." So he spends three years traveling the world to try and understand the real causes of anxiety and depression and discovers nine real causes and multiple, creative solutions.

His book raises interesting questions: Are our present theories the best way to understand our and our patients' experiences of emotional discontent? Might there be additional ways to understand the causes, and possibly the remedies, for so much emotional suffering?
