A unique and engaging perspective of humanity – a journey to wisdom shared through stories of self-awareness, acceptance, and discovery, by acclaimed psychotherapist Dr. Hassan Khalili.

In A Life Spent Listening, Dr. Hassan Khalili reflects on four decades of being a frontline community psychotherapist and shares the wisdom he has learned over the years. By inviting the reader into his own life and the lives of his patients, Dr. Khalili explores the human condition and explains his concept of the grid as a guiding principle in his psychological practice. The book takes us from his experience as a young Iranian immigrant in Newfoundland and Labrador to his role as one of the top psychologists in the province, by way of his adventures hiking Machu Picchu and Mount Kilimanjaro. Dr. Khalili illuminates what it means to seek contentment and how we hold the key to our own happiness.

About the Author:

Dr. Hassan Khalili has been a frontline community psychologist for over forty years. In his career, he has been the Director of the Waterford Mental Hospital and an Assistant Professor at Memorial University Department of Psychiatry Medical School; he has operated a private practice psychology clinic in St. John’s, Newfoundland, with his associates, for over thirty years. In addition, he has also served on the Board of Directors for various community living organizations, as well as the Newfoundland and Labrador College of Dietitians (NLCD), and is former president of the NL Psychology Association. He is a lifetime member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Psychology Board, American Psychological Association, and Canadian Psychological Association. When he is not in the clinic, he enjoys spending time with his family, checking items off his bucket list, and gardening. A Life Spent Listening is his first book.
