CSPP PsyD graduate from the Los Angeles campus, Dr. Christina Hibbert, recently published her new book: This Is How We Grow: A Psychologist’s Memoir of Loss, Motherhood & Discovering Self-Worth & Joy, One Season at a Time.

This book is a memoir about the death of her brother-in-law and sister, and how she and her husband have adopted their two kids. This book brings a positive message and shows how personal tragedy can be overcome. It also shows how those affected by tragedy can thrive. Being a psychologist herself, adds a glimpse into how mental health professionals can deal with loss and adversity.

If you are interested in reading her book, its available on Amazon.

 

What happens when a clinical psychologist and expert on women’s mental health, postpartum depression, grief, and parenting finds her world turned upside down? After her sister and brother-in-law die, Dr. Christina Hibbert inherits her two nephews, delivers her 4th baby, and goes from three to six kids practically overnight. This is How We Grow invites readers into Dr. Hibbert’s upside-down world as she fights to find a little right-side-up. A deeply personal true story blended with psychological insights, This is How We Grow offers an intimate glimpse into the doctor becoming the patient as Dr. Hibbert struggles to put her theories and expertise to the test in an effort to grow a new family and grow herself.

Following four years and four seasons, Dr. Hibbert’s story explores such topics as death and suicide, loss and grief, motherhood, marriage, sisters, family, relationships, spirituality, self-worth, joy, and love. This Is How We Grow demonstrates how hard life can be. Yet it also illustrates how, when we choose to grow, we can and will overcome, become and eventually, flourish.
