  • Your therapist is judging you Sorry, it sucks I know the idea is that they are objective observers looking out for your best interest rather than the often hypercritical, dismissive average human being with a capacity for conversational boredom and bad advice, but they re not Especially not Dr Yalom Dr Yalom hates fat people, he develops a sexual attraction to one of his patients multiple personalities and encourages her to incorporate this split self into her overarching self so she ll be a en [...]


  • I had originally started Irvin D Yalom s newest release Becoming Myself, where he mentioned this collection of stories which sounded fitting because my attention span was slight at the time.Love s Executioner and Other Tales of Psychotherapy offers a keen insight on ten patients, from all walks of life, who turned to therapy, all ten were suffering the common problems of everyday life loneliness, self contempt, impotence, migraine headaches, sexual compulsivity, obesity, hypertension, grief, a [...]


  • A friend gave me this book a few days ago My friend is very well educated, has lived all over the world, and has experienced than most people When he gave me the book, he said to me, This book reflects my vision of the world.How could I help but be intrigued Opening the book, he then read the following passage from the Preface Four givens are particularly relevant for psycho therapy the inevitability of death for each of us and for those we love the freedom to make our lives as we will our ulti [...]



  • From both my personal and professional experience, I had come to believe that the fear of death is always greatest in those who feel that they have not lived their life fully A good working formula is the unlived life, or unrealized potential, the greater one s death anxiety In his book Love s Executioner, Irvin Yalom, a psychotherapist with several decades of experience, shares ten stories of individuals he counseled in a professional setting Each of these tales revolves around different prese [...]


  • The stories of 10 patients experiences in psychotherapy but they feel like much .The stories offer a surprisingly engaging window to peek into the struggles of patients w the very same existential pains and miseries everyone experiences The author is a practicing therapist, and he based these stories on his patients suitably amended to ensure anonymity He reflects much on his own role in the therapeutic relationship, and these reflections are often as interesting as the stories of his patients.E [...]


  • There is no adventure exciting, nothing so wonderful and frightening, and so fraught with danger, as delving into the mind of a human being On that point alone this book is moving and emotional and funny as few works of fiction can be When going on such a perilous journey into the true heart of darkness it behooves one to have an experienced and trustworthy guide Dr Irving Yalom knows the terrain and the beasts that lurk within yet I would prefer having Fred C Dobbs showing me the way in The Tr [...]


  • Love s Executioner is a wonderful collection of psychotherapy tales of master psychiatrist Irvin Yalom Although the book does have a sort of instructional focus, I believe anyone could enjoy the content Yalom describes treating patients with a multitude of symptoms and presentations, and his intelligent and thoughtful approach to them all Even though his theory of choice doesn t align with my own, I really do have to awe at and truly appreciate the true mastery of the therapeutic process I remem [...]


  • Love s Executioner God that s a good title Vaguely profound statements are the best Fortune cookies anyone In this book, Yalom gives accounts of patients he has had I am not sure what criteria were used in picking the case studies he did for the book I imagine he has rich history of intriguing patients and these are no exception In Love s Executioner you will read about interesting characters and their neuroses and watch from behind the scenes as Yalom applies his psychological scalpel or in som [...]


  • Last year I started seeing a therapist for the first time in my life, although not by deliberate choice but rather as a side benefit of something else namely, I attended one of those computer coding bootcamp programs here in Chicago, and one of the things they provide for their students for no cost is a licensed therapist on staff for weekly sessions I ended up responding so well to the process, though, that I ve continued seeing her in private practice ever since.As part of this therapy process [...]


  • This book gave a lot of insights into the therapeutic process, but I found the guy a total putz very self aware of his own reactions to the patients he describes, but not so concerned about their own experience of the process that he wouldn t describe them in great detail to the world at large Also, just comes off as self satisfied it made the reading distasteful, and I didn t finish in the end I couldn t stand the supercilious sense he gives of being in some way, better than his clients.


  • This is not the book to read while you are actually in therapy Although I think Love s Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy was meant to show people the behind the scenes of psychology, Dr Yalom will make you question the motives of any practitioner, no matter how saintly That s not to say that the book isn t intriguing, informative, or balanced it is all of those things It s just that Yalom comes across as unbearably arrogant in many of the case studies, which belies the work he s trying to [...]



  • I started reading this book with the expectation that I would find an interesting but nonetheless mechanical look into the brass tacks of psychiatry and found something far dangerous and intriguing Dr Yalom is a creative writer And he s utterly brilliant.Starting with the prologue, this work is filled with deep and genuine originality, taste, and introspection Dr Yalom s prose is sagaciously crafted, and a pleasure to read and reread The entirety of the collection is used as an abstract for Dr [...]


  • As a psychology student with plenty of knowledge about mental health but zero experience with what actually happens in real life therapy, this book was incredibly interesting and helpful for me Yalom is refreshingly honest about his own thoughts and experiences in therapy, openly admitting to instances where he made wrong decisions and sharing his darker thoughts thoughts that one would expect highly trained psychologists to be above as they operate in their supernatural realm free of judgement, [...]


  • I read this book for a second time sometime last week and have been too busy to write anything about it Currently I really need to be asleep and am not, so this will be slightly confused, short, and likely unnecessary, deal The first time that I read this book I appreciated the fact that Yalom s therapy is relationship based It is really about the people and caring about those people Instead of diagnosis and being crazy Not to say that this can t be completely misinterpreted as I saw in my class [...]


  • Some day soon, perhaps in forty years, there will be no one alive who has ever known me That s when I will be truly dead when I exist in no one s memory I thought a lot about how someone very old is the last living individual to have known some person or cluster of people When that person dies, the whole cluster dies,too, vanishes from the living memory I wonder who that person will be for me Whose death will make me truly dead I loved it, gave me insight of how the therapist patient relationshi [...]

  • In Love s Executioner , Yalom describes the presentation and treatment of 10 patients of his real life from his psychotherapy practice This is a book I selected on my own free will, but it ended up feeling like a school assignment as I trudged to the ending I chose the book for the play by play of the therapy hour, for Yalom s well documented experience in psychotherapy and for my intimate knowledge of my own inexperience here at the beginning of my career The motivation to read the book was o [...]

  • Four givens are particularly relevant for psycho therapy the inevitability of death for each of us and for those we love the freedom to make our lives as we will our ultimate aloneness and, finally, the absence of any obvious meaning or sense to life It is not without reason that Love s executioner and other tales has developed a reputation as one of the leading books accessible for a lay reader on the interactions of psychotherapy It comprises of ten interesting stories, semi fictionalised by Y [...]


  • In his introduction, Yalom lays out the fundamental ideas in which existential psychotherapy is grounded, including our ultimate aloneness Existential isolation refers to the unbridgeable gap between self and others, a gap that exists even in the presence of deeply gratifying interpersonal relationships a seemingly strange premise for a book which consists of ten tales of a psychiatrist trying to understand and help his remarkable patients Yalom, however, embraces the paradox and shares his stru [...]


  • this is a series of essays, based on yalom s private practice yalom is a freakin massive genius is the world of psychology he basically founded existential psychotherapy, and also was the first person to effectively use the group model in any productive way he uses the process group method, dbt uses a classroom style approach the fat lady is maybe the most famous story from here what i love about yalom is you know he s the biggest pompous asshole, but at the same time, he s totally willing to a [...]

  • Ho letto il libro per la seconda volta me l ha regalato in italiano la mia carissima amica E il libro che mi ha fatto rivolgermi al psicoterapeuta per ottimizzare alcuni aspetti della mia vita Consigliato alle persone nei momenti difficili delle loro vite Un libro veramente purificante e profondo.


  • A fitting title would be How counter transference, insidious prejudice and sexism destroys the therapeutic process The man s a creep and from what I can tell in these vignettes a poor to average psychotherapist Though, I can see how one could become seduced by his writings and spurious analysis to believe there is some insights to be gleamed from this book.



  • Fun read, I was taken aback a few times at the language he chose to describe his clients I suppose we re all human His afterword shows that he thought his word choice wasn t the best either.
