Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist Our Lives Revealed

Community Event

In addressing the epidemic of stress and anxiety in our teens and in our daily lives as parents, Lori Gottlieb, MFT and Lisa Damour, Ph.D. will engage in a compassionate conversation that will examine the anxieties about the process of therapy and how to best deal with uncertainly in these challenging times.

Lori Gottlieb brings a unique perspective on therapy from both sides of the couch. One day, Lori is helping patients at her therapeutic practice in LA – the next, she finds herself in a crisis and seeking a therapist of her own. In this important conversation and in her groundbreaking book Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, Gottlieb opens up about her experience as both professional and patient. She examines the truths and fictions we tell ourselves to live and asks, “What happens when those stories are wrong?”

Ms. Gottlieb is a psychotherapist and author of the New York Times bestseller Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, which is currently being adapted as a television series. In addition to her clinical practice, she writes The Atlantic’s weekly “Dear Therapist” advice column and is co-host of the popular “Dear Therapists” podcast produced by Katie Couric. She contributes regularly to the New York Times and many other publications and in 2019, her TED Talk was one of the Top 10 Most Watched of the Year. A member of the Advisory Council for Bring Change to Mind, she is a sought-after expert in media such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, CNN, and NPR’s “Fresh Air.”

Ms. Gottlieb will be interviewed by nationally acclaimed author and columnist Lisa Damour, Ph.D. who joins GPS at noon on September 23 for “Under Pressure: Taking Control of Stress and Anxiety /Youth Mental Health Post-Pandemic.”

A community address about teen mental health will follow with Janet Cook, Glenbard District 87 Assistant Superintendent of Student Services. This event is being presented in concurrence with National Suicide Awareness Month. Additional support for this program comes from the Glen Ellyn Youth and Family Counseling Service. CPDUs are available. This event will be presented virtually. The link will be posted here when available to log in to this webinar from your computer, tablet, or phone.
