The collection of ten absorbing tales by master psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom uncovers the mysteries, frustrations, pathos, and humor at the heart of the therapeutic encounter. In recounting his patients' dilemmas, Yalom not only gives us a rare and enthralling glimpse into their personal desires and motivations but also tells us his own story as he struggles to reconcile his all-too human responses with his sensibility as a psychiatrist. Not since Freud has an author done so much to clarify what goes on between a psychotherapist and a patient.

Mehr über den Autor

Als Sohn jüdisch-russischer Einwanderer wurde Irvin D. Yalom am 13. Juni 1931 in Washington, D. C., geboren. Während die Eltern mit dem Lebensmittelladen und dem ökonomischen Überleben beschäftigt waren, zog sich der Sohn von der verarmten und gewalttätigen Nachbarschaft in die Welt der Bücher zurück. Die Liebe für Geschichten und deren biographische Bedeutung beeinflusste seine Studienwahl: Medizin mit der Fachrichtung Psychiatrie. Sein erstes Fachbuch, "Theorie und Praxis der Gruppentherapie", enthielt zahlreiche biographische Fallvignetten, die den Band mit 700.000 Exemplaren zu einem Verkaufsschlager weit über Expertenkreise hinaus werden ließen. Yalom hat vier erwachsene Kinder und zahlreiche Enkel.



"Dr. Yalom demonstrates once again that in the right hands, the stuff of therapy has the interest of the richest and most inventive fiction."-New York Times "Like Freud, Yalom is a graceful and canny writer. The fascinating, moving, enervating, inspiring, unexpected stuff of psychotherapy is told with economy and, most surprising, with humor."-Washington Post Book World "Yalom is a gifted storyteller, and from the sound of these tales, a no-less-gifted psychotherapist. He restores a sense of awe and mystery to an endeavor that all too often gets mired in the muck of jargon and categorization... In addition to bringing the reader up close to his patients, and to a process often (necessarily) cloaked in secrecy, he gives the reader an un-airbrushed picture of the therapist, warts and all."-Los Angeles Times "Here is the naked therapist, stripped of the armor of god-like omniscience, aware of his flaws..."-Chicago Tribune "Inspired...Yalom writes with the narrative wit of O. Henry and the earthy humor of Isaac Bashevis Singer."-San Francisco Chronicle "Love's Executioner is Yalom's wise, humane, stirring and utterly absorbing account of how 10 of his patients try to cope with what he calls 'existence pain'-the knowledge that death is inevitable, that each of us is ultimately alone, that life has no clear meaning, but that we nonetheless have the freedom 'to make our lives as we will'...Irvin Yalom's book is charged with hope and generosity of spirit."-Newsday "By his honesty and literary talent, Yalom convinces us that these are, in his words, 'everyman, everywoman stories' and that in each of these 'crazies,' in my word, is a little bit of you and me."-Miami Herald "Dr. Irvin Yalom ... bravely steps into this chaotic void in Love's Executioner ... [H]e brings understanding, order, and the 'feel' of the process of psychotherapy as few before him have done."-Toronto Star "Dr. Yalom's point is not to merely document psychological abnormality, it is to demonstrate that 'it is possible to confront the truths of existence and harness their power in the service of personal change and growth.' Read Love's Executioner, and weep."-Globe and Mail "[Yalom's] honesty can be unnerving ... Love's Executioner offers a tragic, deeply felt vision of the human condition. In demystifying the therapist-patient encounter, Dr Yalom brings us into broader territory: he reminds us of our need for intimacy and trust and the struggle necessary to achieve them."-Sunday Herald (Melbourne, Australia) "The vicissitudes of neurosis and its treatment have always provided irresistible material for dramatic narratives. In Love's Executioner Yalom demonstrates that in the right hands, the stuff of therapy has the interest of the richest and most inventive fiction."-Arkansas Democrat-Gazette "[I]nsightful."-Monterey County Herald (California) "In Love's Executioner I marvelled at Yalom's courage in writing about therapeutic relationships which had not been a great success and also at his skill in bringing these encounters to life."-Existential Analysis (London) "Irvin Yalom writes like an angel about the devils that besiege us. These beautifully wrought true stories go way beyond therapy; they are incisive and moving tales of life, by a wise psychotherapist."-Rollo May "Love's Executioner is one of those rare books that suggests both the mystery and the poetry of the psychotherapeutic process. The best therapists are at least partly poets. With this riveting and beautifully written book, Irvin Yalom has joined their ranks."-Erica Jong "These stories are wonderful. They make us realize that within every human being lie the pain and beauty that make life worthwhile."-Bernie S. Siegel "This is an impressive transformation of clinical experience into literature. Dr. Yalom's case histories are more gripping than 98 percent of the fiction published today, and he has gone to amazing lengths of honesty to depict himself as a realistic flesh-and-blood character: funny, flawed, perverse, and above all, understanding."-Phillip Lopate "These remarkably moving and instructive tales of the psychiatric encounter bring the reader into novel territories of the mind-and the landscape is truly unforgettable."-Maggie Scarf "Dr. Yalom is unusually honest, both with his patients and about himself."-Anthony Storr "I loved Love's Executioner. Dr. Yalom has learned something that fiction writers learned years ago-that people's mistakes are a lot more interesting than their triumphs."-Joanne Greenberg


The risks and rewards of psychotherapy are examined by one of its finest practitioners through ten case studies of individuals with unique problems that nevertheless reflect on the whole human condition. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Honesty To A Fault Can Be Reality 15. Mai 2005
Dr. Yalom has created a collection of stories regarding ten patients and their experiences. What is unique about Dr. Yalom's writing is that he is free and open in describing his own feelings about and towards his patients. These cover a full range of emotions, including frustration, anger, disgust and empathy. Usually one reads about the patient, but in these encounters, Dr. Yalom almost bares as much of his own pathos as his patients and that can be unsettling.
One patient understands and is finally relieved of her eight-year obsession with a younger man, but is left with the reality of her own boring octogenarian life. Another regards a man who is dying of cancer and would like to rape all women, especially those in his therapy group. He is filled with anger, but finally understands how to change his human flaw before death. Yet another chapter is just called, "Fat lady" and this is one where Dr. Yalom really lets loose with his patient. He empathizes and completely understands her history and pain, yet readily admits to being disgusted by her appearance and was surprised that he could actually get his arms around her in a final hug.
Some may find his technique of psychotherapy obscenely honest, yet it does put the practitioner on the same plane as the patient. To many, that will be upsetting - to realize that the person helping you is only a human guide for your own journey towards "wellness".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank goodness I'm not alone! 6. Oktober 1998
Von Cheri
As a graduate student in counseling, I was both excited and relieved by this candid account of Dr. Yalom's own experiences with ten very unique clients. He lets us see what he was thinking, shows us that we aren't alone in thinking some patients are boring, others completely frustrating. Dr. Yalom is a brilliant, yet completely honest human, and I have learned as much, or more, from his writings as I have in my formal counseling education. A must read for anyone interested in studying to be a therapist or thinking about getting therapy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A truely beautiful book 2. April 1998
I loved this book because it illustrates so beautifully the inescapable challenges and contradictions at the centre of existence. In the words of one of Professor Yalom's patients "everyone has a heart" and we are permitted a rare insight into the therapeutic relationship to feel and understand how these hearts beat, bleed and heal. This book provides unforgettable insights on human relationships and the nature of therapy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An entertaining treatment of a serious subject 7. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Having read one of Yalom's fiction works, I expected to enjoy this book, and I did - immensely. I like psychology and read a lot of non-fiction works. This book deals with a serious subject in an entertaining way, the stories read like fiction and are certainly "stranger than fiction." In the Prologue, Yalom provides a brief introduction to Existential Psychotherapy, a core part of his technique. This is not a self-help or how-to book, but one can learn from the examples while enjoying the easy narrative writing style. Anyone with an appreciation for psychotherapy should love this book. Even those who think shrinks should be shrunk would probably find it entertaining and interesting if not enlightening.

5.0 von 5 Sternen unputdownable 16. April 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Es sind sehr interessante Geschichten über Menschen, ihre Schicksale und schrägen Bewältigungstechniken. Yalom beschreibt die Fälle sehr spannend und unterhaltsam. Dabei gibt er sehr viel preis, von dem was sich hinter den Kulissen und im Kopf des Therapeuten abspielt. Er berichtet von seinen langjährigen Erfahrungen, seinen Erkenntnissen und seinen eigenen Schwächen. Ein gutes Buch für alle, die sich für unser aller Innenleben interessieren und die keine Neigung zum Fremdschämen haben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ten moving and instructive tales of psychotherapy 22. Juni 2006
The first case presented by Dr Yalom is a seventy-year-old lady called Thelma who fell in love with her previous therapist Matthew 8 years ago and has thus to deal with the difficult ethical question whether a therapist should be allowed to seduce a patient or be seduced by the patient.

Carlos is virtually alone in the world and his obsession is to make love to as many women as possible, never twice to the same one.

Betty is an extremely obese, plain, boring and deeply depressed twenty-seven year old woman. Because the therapist may sometimes be rebuked by a patient's physical appearance, this gives the opportunity to the author to talk about the concepts of transference and countertransference.

Penny is a thirty-eight year old woman whose daughter died four years previously, whose husband abandoned her and whose son is in jail and the other hiding. She suffers from acute bereavement.

Elva had been traumatised and suffers from post-traumatic stress, she feels unsafe, has a reduced startle threshold and is hypervigilant.

Dave needs the therapist's help because he wants him to be the keeper of his love letters.

Marie remains frozen in grief three years after the death of her husband and the only way to help her is an attempt to be treated by a hypnotherapist.

Saul worked for a year at the Stockholm Research Institute and he is convinced that his research there was not really appreciated. When a first letter, then a second and a third arrive from the Institute, Saul is convinced that they are writing to him about the poor quality of his work and dares not open them. He then falls into a terrible depression.

Marge's own evaluation is that she is nothing, garbage, a creep, a cipher.
