3 pm to 5 pm

5 pm to 6 pm a special reception with Josh

at Northbrae Church


We are delighted to welcome back storyteller Josh Kornbluth to The Psychotherapy Institute for a special event titled, "Josh's Brain Improv," an improvised performance that will help feed development of a fully staged, one-man show about Kornbluth's experiences working with the Global Brain Health Institute.              

Early in 2017, Josh Kornbluth (who, in his undergraduate days, had flunked out of every single science course he took) unexpectedly was made a "Fellow" at the Global Brain Health Institute, based at UCSF. He took classes about the brain and dementia, attended doctor meetings with patients and their caregivers, shadowed nurses on their rounds, and bombarded behavioral neurologists with questions as they tried to get to the bathroom. His goal was to absorb all the information he could about brain health and brain science and then transmit it to the masses (or as close to the masses as he could get) via storytelling. But since his Fellowship happened to begin at the same time as Donald Trump's presidency, Josh also saw his task as to incorporate brain-related knowledge into the nascent Resistance. As the nation progressed rapidly through a kind of political dementia, he raced to come up with a cure -- even as he fought the deterioration of his own emotional state.
