About the Original Book:
Group is Christie Tate’s raw and brutally honest account of the years the Chicago-based writer spent in Dr. Rosen’s psychotherapy groups and the transformation she experienced as a result. At the start, Tate is a recovering bulimic harboring the deep conviction that she is unlovable and repressing suicidal thoughts. When she joins Dr. Rosen’s groups, she learns to overcome her fear of being truly seen and begins to open up to her group mates about her troubled childhood, disordered eating, and other aspects of her life that her old self would fight to keep hidden. When everything comes out, she finally gets out of her own way and starts connecting—first with herself, then with Dr. Rosen and her group mates, and then with colleagues and other people around her.
