Mary Akers and Andrew Bienkowski will discuss their recent book, Radical Gratitude and other life lessons learned in Siberia, which tells the story of Bienkowski's experiences during WWII when he was banished to Siberia with his family, alternating with case histories from his 40+ years as a clinical psychotherapist in the US. The book's main concept, Radical Gratitude, explores the notion that we can learn to be grateful--even for the difficult experiences in our lives because of how they make us into stronger, more empathetic, and more humane individuals.
