Group Author Christie TateAtic story full of conflict and also full of Bright College Years growth It delivers on every level Tate is interesting the therapy is interesting we llet to that and it is incredibly interesting to see the actual progress of how she changes over time It helps that Tate is willing to be so open about her actions and her flaws that it verges on discomfort for the reader There are some cringe y moments but a lot of this is because Tate is never trying to defend or soften herself And I Suspect The Cringe I suspect the cringe of our own defense mechanisms kicking in than anything else The therapy here is well I don t think it s an overstatement to call it nontraditional It isn t just that this is roup therapy Tate s therapist isn t like *Any I Ve Ever Encountered Before The *I ve ever encountered before The he ives his patients are often horrifying His actions are often horrifying The typical boundaries of therapist and patient are basically nonexistent And I suspect people who don t like this book will dislike it because of how uncomfortable they are with Tate herself and with her therapist s actions I am not a therapist and I ve never had a therapist like this one and I can t say that I endorse anything that happens in this book But I can t deny the effects on Tate The Cezanne and Provence: The Painter in His Culture group insists on a complete lack of privacy as well as a lack of confidentiality and wow did I bristle reading that and I suspect others will too Even for me a person who is far too open about herself to strangers in public it is maybe not the right way But there s no denying how it plays out in Tate s life At first it also seems like theroup will be an antagonistic experience but it turns out that being totally open about yourself with strangers can help you be totally open with yourself and the people in your life I m not Chicago's Urban Nature: A Guide to the City's Architecture + Landscape going to turn around and tell you to try to replicate Tate s experience but it certainly makes for riveting reading I read this in less than a dayYou really can t deny the work Tate did that she s laid out for you here She doesn t have those flaws I see in memoir so often when someone lacks perspective on an event or isn t fully honest with themselves or has neglected to understand the repercussions of their actions Tate sure seems to see everything pretty clearly The writing is honest and clear Tateuides you through with warm openness while still being herself messy and crass and critical I have been Twitter mutuals with Tate for many years from back in our blogging days Group was not a book for me I just could not connect with the information or the author The information felt too forced for my liking Some of the stories and fears shared in this was reat and it definitely had some LOL moments however there must be some kind of rules broken by the therapist who leads the roup when she starts over sharing to the participants in Collections of Nothing group If I wasoing to support I would feel creeped out when the therapist is taking over and spilling her Communism guts Still a worthy read for people that find comfort for their issues in a setting like this but it may not be for allGoof writing and some stories but taking away a star for the therapist who is crossing some unsafe boundaries I still appreciate this bookThanks to Netgalley the author and Avid Reader Press for an ARC in exchange for an honest reviewAvailable 10620 I have no idea who Christie Tate is but reading her memoir was perhaps one of the most intimate experiences I ve ever felt reading about someone else s life Group is raw powerful funny tear jerking and honest I flew through the pages in a few short hours soaking it all in every page left me wanting to know read further I 100% recommend for a cathartic reading experienc.

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 limpse 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 *outside my comfort zone 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 Consumed: Food for a Finite Planet good humble laugh about your own mental bullshit and want to feel the messy connection with some hilariously diverse strangers inroup therapy Also if you need a reminder that our mental health struggles and successes ebb and *flow and that it s always oing to be a cycle of figuring out how to *and that it s always oing to be a cycle of figuring out how to 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 Therapy is an essential part of Conversations with Nelson Algren getting to the core roots of your problems and essentially taking back your life I personally I love reading about other people s therapy so was fascinated by this account of unconventionalroup therapy and its life changing conseuences I love reading advice columns and shows about people in therapy I find the way people see their own problems fascinating and I find them even fascinating when taken through another person who is there to consider and possibly disagree with the way a person sees their problems I am frustrated that I can t read a million books about people sharing their experiences in therapy But I et it Sometimes when I watchreadhear these stories I think Wow how can anyone be okay sharing this much of themselves publicly even if they re anonymized It is hard to put yourself out there to a therapist it is harder to put that conversation out there in the world This book is not one where the author is being uarded about what she presents of her life to you Not even a little And it s not a normal book about therapy either And I loved every single page I could read 100 books like this and I would be okay with at least a few of them being written by Tate herselfEven though I love stories about therapy I admit I was skeptical that the book would work Memoirs can be about too much or too little sometimes the writer has not fully rappled with something and sometimes they find themselves interesting than anyone else does All of these seemed to be potential pitfalls here But I didn t run into any of them At first I wondered if it would be enough would there be enough drama and conflict Would it be a pretty run of the mill story But of course even a run of the mill story But of course even a of the mill story is fascinating if you tell it the right way We learn right away that the trigger event that ot Tate into therapy in her 20 s was feelings of suicidal ideation after years of struggling with an eating disorder It s serious but you wonder she seems well adjusted after all she just ot first in her class in law school But don t worry there is a lot to Tate that you don t see on the surface at firstThe thing is this is a seriously dram.
