Dr. Keith discusses how the concept of “normal” profoundly effects our development and functioning.
We all have drives to belong to various groups, which means feeling normal by those groups’ standards. We also have drives to be authentically ourselves, as well as wanting to be deeply known and accepted by others. Vertical development shifts our standards of normal, as well as which groups we value, mostly out of our awareness. Add on the complication that many of us use “normal” as a moral judgment as much as, (or more than) a statistical construct, and we can see how problems and confusion can arise in our understanding of “normal”.
Join us as Dr. Keith explores these issues, how they affect us, and how he has dealt with them over the decades in therapy sessions and groups.
