-Publisher

^ 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, Irvin D. Yalom imparts his unique wisdom in "The Gift of Therapy." This remarkable guidebook for successful therapy is, as Yalom remarks, "an idiosyncratic mElange 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.

Irvin D Yalom

Irvin D. Yalom, M.D., is professor emeritus of psychiatry at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He was the recipient of the 1974 Edward Strecker Award and the 1979 Foundation's Fund Prize in Psychiatry.


He was born in Washington, D.C. on June 13, 1931, of parents who immigrated from Russia shortly after World War I. Yalom entered into medical school intent on studying the field of psychiatry. His first writings were scientific contributions to professional journals.


His first book, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy was widely used as a text for training therapists. It has been translated into twelve languages and spawned five editions.


Existential Psychotherapy followed, which was a textbook for a course that did not exist at the time, and then "npatient Group Psychotherapy, a guide to leading groups in the inpatient psychiatric ward.


In an effort to teach aspects of Existential Therapy, Yalom turned to a literary conveyance and wrote a book of therapy tales called Love's Executioner, two teaching novels, When Nietzsche Weptand Lying on the Couch and, Momma and the Meaning of Life, a collection of true and fictionalized tales of therapy.
