How to Adapt and Survive in a Time of Crisis

Julia Samuel In Conversation with Hannah MacInnes

In this unprecedented moment in global history, join psychotherapist Julia Samuel for a free livestream about finding unknown strengths in times of difficulty and change.

Julia Samuel, one of Britain’s leading psychotherapists and a specialist in the psychology of change and grief, joins How To Academy to explore powerful, intimate stories of everyday people in times of profound uncertainty.

As the global coronavirus pandemic causes profound difficulties to our health, work, and family, Julia will draw upon more thirty years of experience helping everyday people in times of uncertainty, and teach us the skills we need to adapt and hopefully thrive in this strange new normal. She will tell us powerful stories –from a woman deciding whether to leave her husband for a younger lover, to a father handling a serious medical diagnosis – and explore the lessons we can take away and apply to our own lives in this time of crisis.

This livestream is free to all participants.

Please consider purchasing a copy of Julia’s new book, This Too Shall Pass: Stories of Change, Crisis and Hopeful Beginnings, from independent bookseller Primrose Hill Books.
