The refreshingly original and "startlingly hopeful" (Lisa Taddeo) debut memoir of an over-achieving young lawyer who reluctantly agrees to group therapy and gets psychologically and emotionally naked in a room of six complete strangers??and finds human connection, and herself.
Christie Tate had just been named the top student in her law school class and finally had her eating disorder under control. Why then was she driving through Chicago fantasizing about her own death? Why was she envisioning putting an end to the isolation and sadness that still plagued her despite her achievements?

Enter Dr. Rosen, a therapist who calmly assures her that if she joins one of his psychotherapy groups, he can transform her life. All she has to do is show up and be honest. About everything??her eating habits, childhood, sexual history, etc. Christie is skeptical, insisting that that she is defective, beyond cure. But Dr. Rosen issues a nine-word prescription that will change everything: "You don't need a cure. You need a witness."

So begins her entry into the strange, terrifying, and ultimately life-changing world of group therapy. 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.

"Often hilarious, and ultimately very touching" (People), Group is "a wild ride" (The Boston Globe), and with Christie as our guide, 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 fin

I really did not like this book. The therapist was highly unethical and the author was whiny at best. ( )
  alyjane | Jan 23, 2024 |
As someone who is now past a year of one-on-one therapy, I can sympathize with how solely scary it would be to share everything with a group. While I do relate a lot to the author’s journey, I don’t particularly love their attitudes at times. Some people go into therapy expecting change immediately, but that’s not what it’s about. It’s hard work, and I think they ultimately got that. ( )

I am grateful to the author for sharing her personal journey, but I was definitely left questioning the ethics of the doctor's approach, and the boundaries seemed very unprofessional. A relatively compelling read, however. ( )

Rating generously as this was not my cup of tea. I did force myself to finish. I did have problems with the content. ( )
  MadTattler | Nov 10, 2022 |
This book has been on my TBR list for a long time, and sometimes I expect too much and am disappointed when I finally read a book from the list. I am a supporter of therapy and understand how valuable it can be, I just didn't find listening to someone retelling their whole group therapy story all that interesting. However, I can see how it would be helpful to others (I did a lot of reading about grief when I experienced a big loss). I listened to the audio version of this book. ( )

The first time I wished for death—like, really wished its bony hand would tap me on the shoulder and say “this way”—two bags from Stanley's Fruit and Vegetables sat shotgun in my car.
