    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyPsychiatrist Dr Irvin D Yalom is married to a feminist scholar which is highly surprising considering the fact that he regards women in a very sexualized and demeaning way Unless they were attractive women he displayed a worrying degree of contempt towards his patients He seemed to have one derogatory thought after another about them In the story ‘The Fat Lady’ he even admits that his contempt for fat ladies ‘surpassed all cultural norms’ But the fat lady Betty offered him an opportunity to improve his personal skills as a therapist She represented to him the ‘ultimate countertransference challenge’ and for that very reason he offered to be her therapist “I have always been repelled by fat women I find them repulsive their absurd sidewise waddle their absence of body contour — breasts laps buttocks shoulders jawlines cheekbon

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyYour 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 entertaining patient and won't be so pathetic in general he successfully convinces a lady to euthanize her incontinent dog in order to bolster her sex life jerk he sizes his patients up as hopeless human beings rambling about how annoying certain cases were for him with details describing each individual while masking their identities to pr

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyI 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 timeLove'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 consuming love obsession mood swings depression Yet somehow a “someh

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyThere 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 Treasure of the Sierra Madre At least with Dobbs you know where you stand Yalom is duplicitous and self aggrandizing his writing screams contempt and distain for all but his most attractive female patients At the same time his writing when keeping t

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy 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

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyA 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

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyThe 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 patientsEach person's story is engaging their narrative just as intriguing as fiction They each come to therapy to somewhat deal with their issues and get better and move on But some are really ready to see and take in even painful insights about themselves; and ready to take painful steps to change

    READER ¶ DOC Love's Executioner Other Tales of Psychotherapy Love's Executioner Other Tales of PsychotherapyThis 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
