Acclaimed author and renowned psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom distills thirty-five years of psychotherapy wisdom into one volume

Anyone interested in psychotherapy or personal growth will rejoice at the publication of The Gift of Therapy, a masterwork from one of the most accomplished psychological thinkers of our day. As an award-winning author of both nonfiction and fiction and a psychiatrist in practice for 35 years, Yalom imparts his unique wisdom in this remarkable guidebook for successful therapy.

At once startlingly profound and irresistibly practical, Yalom's insights — let the patient matter to you; create a new kind of therapy for each patient; how and how not to use self-disclosure — will help enrich the therapeutic process for both patient and counselor.

Irvin D. Yalom, M.D., is professor emeritus of psychiatry at Stanford University. He continues his clinical practice and lectures widely in the United States. His training tapes are frequently used in programs for therapists. Dr. Yalom lives in Palo Alto, CA.

"Yalom writes with the narrative wit of O. Henry and the earthy humor of Isaac Bashevis Singer."
