About the Author

Irvin D. Yalom was born in Washington, D.C. on June 13, 1931, of parents who immigrated from Russia shortly after World War I. Yalom entered into medical school intent on studying the field of psychiatry. His first writings were scientific contributions to professional journals. His first book, näytä lisää "The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy" was widely used as a text for training therapists. It has been translated into twelve languages and spawned four editions. "Existential Psychotherapy" followed, which was a textbook for a course that did not exist at the time, and then "Inpatient Group Psychotherapy," a guide to leading groups in the inpatient psychiatric ward. In an effort to teach aspects of Existential Therapy, Yalom turned to a literary conveyance and wrote a book of therapy tales called "Love's Executioner", two teaching novels, "When Nietzsche Wept" and "Lying on the Couch" and, "Momma and the Meaning of Life," a collection of true and fictionalized tales of therapy. These books went on to be best sellers, and "When Nietzsche Wept" won the Commonwealth Gold Medal for best fiction of 1993. They have been widely translated,each into about fifteen to twenty languages, and have had considerable distribution abroad. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

This small booklet (literally) has an arresting title: I'm calling the police. Over the past three months I have run into two people who said that they were calling the police in conflict situations with me. Actually, I am still flabbergasted because I do not believe I am the kind of person who seeks conflict, but apparently some people here are so stressed that they cannot deal with me. I am bringing this up because I think announcement I'm calling the police is actually a flight forward in a situation that is hopeless. It is an act of despair.

In Irvin Yalom 's book, co-authored with Robert L. Berger this is just the case. However, although it saves the boy's life, he cannot save another man's life and this saddles him up with a lifelong trauma. The booklet describes how this trauma surfaced and how it was cured.

Ik waarschuw de politie could be characterised as a case study. Irvin Yalom is a psyciatrist and a novelist. The suggestion is that this is a true story, but perhaps it is fiction.

Loving, layered and written from a perspective of genuinely trying to demystify the fear of death, it's definitely worth reading,

Una provocadora exploración de las inusuales relaciones que tres terapeutas establecen con sus pacientes.

Seymour es un terapeuta de la vieja escuela que desdibuja el límite de la corrección sexual con uno de sus clientes. Marshal, obsesionado por sus propios comportamientos obsesivo-compulsivos, está preocupado por el papel que juega el dinero en el trato con sus pacientes. Y por último está Ernest Lash quien, impulsado por su sincero deseo de ayudar y su fe en el psicoanálisis, inventa un enfoque radicalmente nuevo de la terapia: una relación totalmente abierta y honesta con un paciente que amenaza con tener resultados devastadores.
Al exponer las muchas mentiras que se dicen dentro y fuera del diván del psicoanalista, Desde el diván ofrece a los lectores una tentadora mirada de lo que sus terapeutas podrían estar pensando durante sus sesiones. Fascinante, absorbente e inteligente, esta novela conmueve a los lectores con un desenlace de sorprendente humanidad y fe redentora.

Excellent de bout en bout. Hilarant, inattendu et brillant. Le premier chapitre est un morceau d'anthologie : a "tour de force".
