Confronting Death and Other Existential Issues in Psychotherapy
Weaving together fascinating tales from his own clinical practice with wisdom from the great philosophers, Yalom illuminates the existential perspective and how it can be skillfully utilized to enliven the psychotherapeutic encounter. Starting with the premise that "therapy is a synergy of powerful ideas and a powerful, intimate connection," he shares those ideas that he has found most useful in his life and work, as well as ways to leverage the therapeutic relationship for maximum growth. If you want to take your clinical work to a deeper level and help your patients come to terms with the ultimate concerns of human existence, there's no better guide in navigating this terrain than Irvin Yalom.
