Event Invitation: Professor Jim Lucey to Discuss His Book In My Room


07-04-2014 16:45

Book a seat at Hodges Figgis to hear Psychiatrist Professor Jim Lucey discuss his new book and how we can be more resilient in the face of life’s challenges.

Professor Jim Lucey, whose voice will be familiar to many from his regular mental health slot with RTÉ’s Today Show, will be in Hodges Figgis discussing his new book, In My Room: The Recovery Journey as Encountered by a Psychiatrist, at 6.30pm on Thursday, 17 April. Entry to the talk is free. If you would like to reserve a seat please email rsvp@gill.ie or call 01 500 9576.

Containing fifteen stories from Lucey’s 25 years working with patients towards recovery, the book demystifies the hidden zone that exists between the psychiatrist and the patient, revealing what goes on in real-life therapy sessions.

Professor Lucey will discuss these cases and shed light on a diversity of mental health problems which touch all our lives, among then depression, anxiety and OCD.

He will address the real markers of mental health and wellbeing – our abilities to live, to work and to love – and how, with mental distress and disorder, the coherence of these elements is interrupted. In reality, not even the most resilient of human beings maintain these functions optimally throughout all of a life. Professor Lucey will address how we can be resilient in the face of stress and respond to the challenges of life whilst maintain our wellbeing.

The author will read from his book and take questions from the audience afterwards.
