1a Goldsmiths Row
We'll start a new iteration of the London Psychology Book Club with a favourite book of mine: "When the Past is Present".
In this book, psychotherapist David Richo explores how we replay the past in our present day relationships - and how we can free ourselves from this destructive pattern.
We all have a tendency to transfer potent feelings, needs, expectations, and beliefs from childhood or from former relationships onto the people in our daily lives, whether they are our intimate partners, friends, or acquaintances.
"When the Past is Present" helps us to become more aware of the ways we slip into the past so that we can identify our emotional baggage and take steps to unpack it and put it where it belongs.
The book club will be a facilitated environment and you are welcome to participate as much or as little as you wish.
You are invited to share your relationship to the book and any difference reading it has made on your life. It is important everyone has the opportunity to voice themselves and be heard.
Although not a therapy group, it is the intention of the organiser to make the space a safe and supportive one. It is hoped confidentiality, curiousity of different opinions and respect for one another will be very much alive in the group.
Please ask if you would like to be further involved in the book club. And suggestions of future book titles and feedback on the book club are welcome too.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
