"[Yalom's] wise ideas are perfectly accessible."--Publishers Weekly
This is absolutely brilliant. Yalom shares his experience and insights into how to be a more effective therapist. He also addresses the other side of the coin: a analysis of what therapists gain from the therapuetic process. So very well written, extremely engaging and wise, gentle and kind. A must have for the fledgeling therapist and a energy booster for the more expereinced. Geat fishpond pricee too.
