Read ↠ Group Author Christie Tate 107 Erapy Christie is initially put off by Dr Rosen’s outlandish directives but as her defenses break down and she comes to trust Dr Rosen and to depend on the sessions and the prescribed nightly phone calls with various group members she begins to understand what it means to connect Group is a deliciously addictive read and with Christie as our guide skeptical of her own capacity for connection and intimacy but hopeful in spite of herself we are given a front row seat to the daring exhilarating painful and hilarious journey that is group therapy an under explored process that breaks you down and then reassembles you so that all the pieces finally f. Oh wow Five stars all the way around I know that several reviews I ve read are stuck on the ethics of Dr Rosen and the way he chooses to practice in his group therapy but you know what It didn t bother me I see the value in the way he makes everyone uncomfortable and let s them feel things and get angry and work through it as a team Having a support system is so important Having a place to go every week at an exact time to keep the feeling of purpose alive in people who are struggling to feel a purpose is so important This setting works for some people and doesn t work for others Christie made life long friends and has a support system like I ve never seen before We could all use that from time to time This little therapy memoir made me laugh made me cry made me frustrated at times It also made me wonder if the traditional 11 therapy didn t work for me because I crave a deeper human connection with people rather than just one therapist and me talking about coping skills Who knows All I know right now is this book was such a treat A glimpse into all of us and our weird emotional struggles and how important it is to be communicative and compassionate towards others So as uncomfortable as some parts were I think it challenged me to think outside my comfort zone and see a different perspective towards therapy and sharing intimate details of our lives with others we trust in a safe environment And about the unorthodox prescriptions that helped these people have emotional breakthroughs I loved them 1010 would recommend if you need a good humble laugh about your own mental bullshit and want to feel the messy connection with some hilariously diverse strangers in group therapy Also if you need a reminder that our mental health struggles and successes ebb and flow and that it s always going to be a cycle of figuring out how to steady ourselves and then having the rug pulled out beneath us the next day this is that reminder You re not alone and it s wonderful works of writing like this that we just need sometimes This was a treasureThank you to NetGalley and the publisher for my advanced reading copy
