At twenty years old, I had my one and only life crisis. In the age of social media, at mid life and even at quarter-life, crises are increasingly becoming the norm, and, in many ways, we bring them upon ourselves. Countless people have found themselves asking, “What the hell have I done with my life?”
In A Person Named Place, Place Wilson offers a window into how she changed her life by embracing psychology and others’ experiences, in order to increase and develop her emotional intelligence. She shares insights from her own experience, which is rich with introspection and passion for life.
Whether you want to prevent a life crisis, hope to get yourself out of a slump, or simply aim to expand your understanding of psychology and mental health, A Person Named Place offers a new perspective on the deficits of American culture. With the use of the P-L-A-C-E method, we can develop self-awareness and emotional intelligence. By better understanding the emotions of both others and oneself, you will be more successful now and everyday.
