Featured Session: SXSW Opening Session: Maybe You Should Talk To Someone

In her revealing runaway New York Times Bestselling book, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TALK TO SOMEONE, Lori Gottlieb takes us on an eye-opening, behind-the-scenes tour of the human condition, sharing stories of the patients she sees as a therapist--along with her own as a "card-carrying member of the human race." She'll be talking about the shame that imprisons us, and the life-changing benefits of sharing our stories--the real ones--with each other. Gottlieb's book is being adapted as a TV series by the creators of "The Americans" and her recent TED Talk examines how we're often unreliable narrators of our own lives. In addition to her clinical practice, she writes The Atlantic’s weekly “Dear Therapist” advice column, and her new podcast, produced by Katie Couric, will launch this spring.
