"Gareth is the type of client many therapists cherish: he is bright, articulate, engaging, and quite motivated to find a way to reduce his distress. And yet he presents certain challenges as well. He is insightful, and can speak easily about himself and his difficulties, often staying at a cognitive level, so it may feel that it is hard to break new ground with him. So it's most interesting to witness first hand the various strategies Yalom uses to connect with him and help him gain some new perspectives. There are several moving exchanges between these two men, both in the later stages of their lives. Any therapist who sees our work as helping clients navigate the challenges of the human condition will find these sessions riveting, and Yalom's commentary illuminating. And if that's not how you typically see therapy, perhaps you'll reconsider!" - Supplied by publisher.
