  • The Gift of Therapy is the new book from the bestselling author of Loves Executioner. The culmination of master psychiatrist Dr Irvin Yaloms forty-five years work as a therapist, this book illustrates through real case studies how patients and therapists alike can get the most out of therapy. Presented as eighty-five tips for beginner therapists, Yalom shares his own fresh approach and the insights he has gained while treating his patients. Personal, and sometimes provocative, Yalom includes some unorthodox suggestions: Let the patient matter to you; Acknowledge your errors; Create a new therapy for each patient; Three kinds of therapist self-disclosure; Revealing the therapists personal life: use caution; Full interpretation of a dream? Forget it!; Freud was not always wrong. This is an entertaining, informative and insightful read for both beginner (and experienced) therapists, patients, students and everyone with an interest in the subject.
