Dr. Lemoncelli Book Signing

Published on Thu, October 23, 2008

Dr. John Lemoncelli of the Counseling Department will sign copies of his new book, "A Mind of Its Own: Healing the Mind and Heart of the Parasite of Childhood Abuse" in the Bookstore on Thursday, November 6th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Dr. Lemoncelli looks to biology to create a metaphor to help victims of child abuse understand its lingering effects. An excerpt: "A Parasite has entered into your system as contaminated love. If it has its way, it will invade your psych--your soul--and consume its host. But you need not give this Parasite one more day of your life. You are not damaged; you are not a bad person. You have an illness from which you begin recovering today."
