Existential psychotherapy by Irvin D Yalom( Book )
29 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,209 libraries worldwide
"Existential therapy has been practiced and continues to be practiced in many forms and situations throughout the world. But until now, it has lacked a coherent structure, and analysis of its tenets, and an evaluation of its usefulness. Irvin Yalom, whose Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy has rendered such a service to that discipline since 1970, provides existential psychotherapy with a background, a synthesis, and a framework. Organized around what Yalom identifies as the four "ultimate concerns of life"--Death, freedom, existential isolation, and meaninglessness--the book takes up the meaning of each existential concern and the type of conflict that springs from our confrontation with each. He shows how these concerns are manifested in personality and psychopathology, and how treatment can be helped by our knowledge of them. Drawing from clinical experience, empirical research, philosophy, and great literature, Yalom has written a broad and comprehensive book. It will provide an intellectual home base for those psychotherapists who have sensed the incompatibility of orthodox theories with their own clinical experience, and it opens new doors for empirical research. The fundamental concerns of therapy and the central issues of human existence are woven together here as never before, with intellectual and clinical results that will surprise and enlighten all readers"--Publisher description

Lying on the couch : a novel by Irvin D Yalom( Book )
37 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 753 libraries worldwide
"It is the "twilight of the shrinks." Disciples of Freud and Jung sandbag against the rising tide of new age therapies and wring their hands over the unreliable narratives of patients who "lie" on the couch. Managed health care threatens the very future of practice. The contemporary therapist has much to worry about: patients who seduce their therapists with money, sex, fanatical devotion - and all the other deadly sins in a game of musical chairs around the seat of power in the therapeutic session." "In a daring spin on his lifelong devotion to chart the inner lives of patients in his intimate case histories, Dr. Yalom now turns the tables on the other half of the therapeutic relationship - the therapist from an age of secrets, who "interprets" the boundaries of sexual propriety. Or Marshal, haunted by his own obsessive-compulsive behaviors, uncertain of the role of money in his relationship with patients. And finally, there is Ernest Lash, who, saved ultimately by his sincere desire to help people, risks a totally open, authentic relationship with a patient and assumes that to be healing in and of itself. Their stories are rendered here with great affection and ruthless recognition."--Jacket
