A fundraiser for Camden Psychotherapy Unit
CPU has helped thousands of vulnerable adults over the last 43 years by providing long term psychotherapy.
John Lahr talks to psychoanalyst and author Stephen Grosz about his recently published book The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves and about his work over the last 25 years.
‘Experience has taught me that our childhoods leave in us stories – stories we never found a way to voice, because no one around us helped us to find the words. When we cannot find a way of telling our story, our story tells us – we dream these stories, we develop symptoms, or we find ourselves acting in ways we don’t understand.’
-The Examined Life
Stephen Grosz was born in Indiana and educated at Berkeley and Oxford. For the past twenty-five years he has worked as a psychoanalyst. The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves is his first book.
