Julia Samuel In Conversation – This Too Shall Pass: Stories of change, in the time of CovidBook tickets
Julia Samuel’s latest book, This Too Shall Pass: Stories of Change, Crisis and Hopeful Beginnings, examines the human struggle to adapt to change, whether prompted by the milestones in life, or by more obviously traumatic experiences. It is made up of nineteen clinical examples, which cover the arc of human development, from first jobs and first loves to children, leaving home and retirement, set against the latest research in this area.
In this early-evening event, Julia will talk about her clinical experiences with patients in which change has proved so demanding, from a new mother struggling with the decision to return to work, to a woman deciding whether to leave her husband for a younger lover, to a man struggling to repair his marriage after the trauma of suffering with Covid-19.
At a time when our lives, and our clinical work, have been so disrupted by the ongoing pandemic, there will be the opportunity to think about the meaning of change in this particular context. There will also be the opportunity for attendees to bring their own comments or questions for Julia’s attention.
