THE GIFT OF THERAPY is the culmination of master psychiatrist Dr Irvin Yalom's thirty-five years' work as a therapist, illustrating 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 makes some unorthodox suggestions, including: Let the patient matter to you; Acknowledge your errors; Create a new therapy for each patient; Make home visits; (Almost) never make decisions for a patient; and Freud was not always wrong. This is an entertaining, informative and insightful read for both beginners and more experienced therapists, patients, students and everyone with an interest in the subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those open to learning with the heart as well as the head - E. Thomas Dowd, Counselling Psychology Quarterly

In 85 short chapters, [Yalom] presents little pearls of ideas shaped from thirty-five years in practice ... Yalom's latest is essential - Library Journal

[Yalom's] wise ideas are perfectly accessible - Publishers Weekly

Very much forward looking - a call to arms for the couch ... I'm struck by the man's unerring sense of humanity ... [Yalom is] a wizard, for whom no curtain is left drawn - Metro Times

An absorbing guide - Boston Globe

Certainly helpful to therapists and patients, may also help any thoughtful person seeking to improve relationships with others and self-understanding - Booklist
