About the Event
Presenter: Dr. Therese Rosenblatt, "How are You? Connection in a Virtual Age"
By turns a memoir, a chronicle, and a provocative contemplation of our new socially distanced and virtual world, How Are You? tells the story of how a therapist found herself plunged overnight into the unsettling reality of a pandemic and all-virtual therapy.
Therese Rosenblatt shares her privileged front-row seat into the hearts and minds of her patients, to report on what is actually going on inside real peoples' heads from the dark, early days of the pandemic through its long, drawn out progression. Dr. Rosenblatt then trains her own attuned eyes and ears onto herself, sharing some of her own experiences, challenges, and unexpected pleasures as she navigates this new world together with her patients.
Readers get an insider view of how her patients are coping with loss, loneliness, and isolation, as well as overcrowding with relatives, spouses, and partners, and their challenges with substance use. Rosenblatt opens a window into her own private thoughts as she conducts her therapy sessions-an inner world that is normally reserved for the therapist alone. At the same time, readers are privy to the experience and perceptiveness of an analytic therapist, living through the same crisis as her patients. A crisis that includes catastrophic illness, social isolation, and the move to a virtual existence that is liberated from the physical space of the consulting room, yet missing its comforts and human sensibilities.
