We’ll explore Lois Holzman’s new book, The Overweight Brain: How Our Obsession with Knowing Keeps Us from Getting Smart Enough to Make a Better World, and how she is writing it publicly through social media. Plus, we’ll talk about Discover Development NYC, a 3-day exploration of New York’s development community that Lois is leading later this month, and her social therapy work, an approach to human development and learning that she has pioneered with Fred Newman. Lois is the director and co-founder of the East Side Institute, convener of the Performing the World conference, and author of several books, including Performing Psychology: A Postmodern Culture of the Mind and Vygotsky at Work and Play.
