Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anyone interested in psychotherapy or personal growth will rejoice at the publication of The Gift of Therapy, a masterwork from one of today's most accomplished psychological thinkers.

From his thirty-five years as a practicing psychiatrist and as an award-winning author of nonfiction and fiction, Irvin D. Yalom imparts his unique wisdom in The Gift of Therapy. This remarkable guidebook for successful therapy is, as Yalom remarks, "an idiosyncratic mélange of ideas and techniques that I have found useful in my work. These ideas are so personal, opinionated, and occasionally original that the reader is unlikely to encounter them elsewhere. I selected the eighty-five categories in this volume randomly guided by my passion for the task rather than any particular order or system."

At once startlingly profound and irresistibly practical, Yalom's insights will help enrich the therapeutic process for a new generation of patients and counselors.

Synopsis:

“ Certainly helpful to therapists and patients, may also help any thoughtful person seeking to improve relationships with others and self-understanding.”

About the Author

Irvin D. Yalom, M.D., is the author of Lying on the Couch, When Nietzsche Wept, Every Day Gets a Little Closer, and Love’s Executioner, as well as several classic psychotherapy texts. He is professor emeritus of psychiatry at Stanford University, and he lives in Palo Alto, California.
