About the list

This movie list was created on 4 March 2021 by Kim Graham.

Reading is one of those pastimes that tends to stay with you for life. Sure, we might start reading children's books like Clifford The Big Red Dog, but as we get older, so too do the books we read. It starts with a modest book, then it progresses to young adult novels, biographies, and classics. Reading takes us out of our everyday lives and stresses, and diving into a fabulous book is

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race

image 8.3

2017 | Reni Eddo-Lodge

Rated by 76 people

Selected by Emma Watson as the Our Shared Shelf Book Club Pick for January/February 2018 Sunday Times Bestseller Winner of the British Book Awards Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year Winner of the Jhalak Prize "This is a book that was begging to be written . . . Essential." --Marlon James "The most important book for me this year." --Emma Watson "One of the most important books of 2017." --Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren’t affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog, entitled: "Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race." Her words hit a nerve. The post went viral and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own experiences. Galvanized by this clear hunger for open discussion, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings. Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. It is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of color in Britain today.

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

image 8.6

2019 | Lori Gottlieb

Rated by 45 people

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC! "Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing."--Katie Couric "This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book."--Arianna Huffington, Founder, Huffington Post and Founder & CEO, Thrive Global "Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book."--Susan Cain, New York Times best-selling author of Quiet From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist's world--where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she). One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of-fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives -- a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys -- she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell. With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is rev-olutionary in its candor, offering a deeply per-sonal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly reveal-ing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy

2010 | Colin Lago,Barbara Smith

Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a ground-breaking text which identifies the ease with which individuals can be disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these and other areas of discrimination, leading experts highlight how vital it is for counsellors, psychotherapists and others in the helping professions, to be aware of and engage with their own social, political and cultural attitudes, and how they must develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners if counselling is to be truly accessible to all members of society.is a ground-breaking text which identifies the ease with which individuals can be disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability.

Race, Culture, and Counselling

1996 | Colin Lago,Joyce Thompson

Race, Culture and Counselling seeks to explore some of the major dimensions and subtleties underlying the issues of race and culture and how these might impact upon counselling-psychotherapeutic relationships. It contributes to the literature that urges awareness, understanding and acceptance between people of different cultural, racial and linguistic origins. The dimensions of race and culture are extremely complex and have many consequences in therapy. Wherever persons of different races and cultures come together in a counselling relationship, some of their interactions will be an unknown quanitity, each may experience discomfort and fear and the results, for both parties, might be negative. This is not a book of case studies, neither is it a cookbook manual of 'how to do it'. Rather, it articulates a range of issues that are pertinent to therapists who live and work in a multi-racial society and also addresses the challenges posed to trainers, supervisors and researchers of counselling and psychotherapy. 'Scores of mental health professionals in both Great Britain and the United States seem to be ill prepared to provide culturally appropriate counselling services to a diverse population ....This book is not only timely, but critical to the future of counselling theory and practice. It is an excellent synthesis of traditional and contemporary ideas related to issues of race and culture in counselling.' - Courtland Lee, Professor of Counsellor Education, University of Virginia, USA
