I’m trying to develop a habit of reading classic psychology books, and what better way than to start a psychology book club? Come along if you want to have an interesting discussion on a fascinating topic!
We will focus mostly on the classics. To give you an idea, I mean books like: -Man And His Symbols, Carl Jung -The Denial Of Death, Ernst Becker -The Ego And The Mechanisms Of Defence, Anna Freud
We will meet once a month (online, for now) to discuss the book for that month, and how our minds have been blown by the greatest thinkers in the field.
I thought we could start off the year with my short article (about 16 pages) called Stand Up For Yourself. A lot of the ideas from the article are from The Assertiveness Workbook by Randy J Paterson, a Canadian psychologist. Paterson's book is one of the best I have ever read, which presents some very practical advice in a simple way. I would definitely recommend giving it a read. My article is meant to be a concise summary which aims to help you learn an important idea in less time. Let's have a more confident, assertive 2022!
