In his classic, bestselling work, the masterful therapist and novelist Irvin Yalom describes his sometimes tragic, sometimes inspiring, and always absorbing encounters with patients
In this classic book, master psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom uncovers the mysteries, frustrations, pathos, and humor at the heart of the therapeutic encounter. With insight and sympathy, Yalom not only gives us a rare and enthralling glimpse into the personal desires and motivations of ten of his patients, but also tells his own story as he struggles to reconcile his all-too-human response with his sensibility as a psychiatrist. Love's Executioner has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers already, and promises to inspire generations of readers to come.
In 10 tales of personal transformation related by the psychotherapist author, each patient makes some headway in overcoming compulsions, depression, hypertension or whatever--yet each also comes face fo face with larger problems such as the inevitability of death or the existential need to give one's life meaning. ``Yalom's humanism shines through in these wise, moving stories,'' commended PW.
One of the best.
This book is amazing for any therapist in training. I have learned a lot about uniqueness of each client, and I honestly have been amazed with Dr.Yalom's work.
