  2. The Other Couch: Discovering Women's Wisdom in Therapy

    October 25, 2016, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Jones Library - Woodbury Room

    The Other Couch explores the lives of 36 inspiring women who struggle to overcome their mental health and relationship challenges with courage, resilience, and commitment. The authors (Patricia Peters Martin, Ph.D. and Helene DeMontreux Houston, MS, APRN) focus on the wisdom patients bring to their therapists in an effort to honor these women and the stories they tell. They hope to reduce the stigma of mental illness, share the therapy process, encourage social connectedness, and emphasize the value of sharing our stories. The Other Couch was written as a tribute, and a gift, to women everywhere.

    Helene DeMontreux Houston, MS, APRN, one of the co-authors, will be discussing how The Other Couch came to be written, the writing process, and how these inspirational stories were chosen. In her 47 year career, Mrs. Houston has specialized in trauma work, mood disorders, codependency and women’s health.

    Books will be available for purchase and signing.
