Love`s Executioner - And Other Tales of Psychotherapy


Product Description

Published USA, 1989. Reprinted 2013
Irvin Yalom provides a rare glimpse into the consulting room of a master therapist. The collection of ten absorbing tales uncovers the mysteries, frustrations, pathos and humour at the heart of the therapeutic encounter. In recounting his patients' dilemmas, Yalom not only gives us a rare and enthralling glimpse into their personal desires and motivations but also tells us his own story as he struggles to reconcile his all-too-human responses with his sensibility as a psychiatrist. Throughout the book he remains refreshingly frank about his own errors and prejudices. His patients suffer from basic human anxieties - isolation, fear of death or freedom, a sense of meaningless in life - that none of us can escape. The latest edition has a new afterword written by the author, now aged 80.

Irvin Yalom is the author of numerous books as well as several classic textbooks on psychotherapy.
