"Reese's book club"--Jacket
A top law school graduate struggling with suicidal thoughts and an eating disorder describes her reluctant participation in a therapeutic support group that taught her the meaning of human connection and intimacy.
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 envisioning putting an end to the isolation and sadness that still plagued her despite her achievements? Enter Dr. Rosen, a therapist who calmly assured 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. Rosen's nine-word prescription : "You don't need a cure. You need a witness." As Tate's 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. -- adapted from jacket
