Shelf-Care Discussion Group

The public is invited to explore popular self-help books with the book group, “Shelf-Care” (Get it? Book shelf and self-care?), sponsored by Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital and Blue Hill Public Library. This 2nd Tuesday of the month group, led by licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) Dede Ragot, and Patty Bergstrom, will meet on November 12th at 5:30 PM at the library.

November’s book will be “Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life” by Byron Katie with Stephen Mitchell. According to the authors, these four questions can be applied to a specific problem, enabling one to see what is troubling them in an entirely different light. As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.”

Patty Bergstrom, LCSW, is a Behavioral Health Provider at Northern Light Health Blue Hill Primary Care. Dede Ragot, LCSW, is the social services director at Island Nursing Home in Deer Isle. Both are avid readers and enjoy discussion groups and learning from others.

This group is free and open to everyone. Copies of the book will be available to check out in advance at the library. For more information, contact the library at 374-5515.
