Wednesday, March 4, 7:30 p.m.Creatures of a Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy
The newest from eminent psychotherapist and leading author of late-20th century writing on psychotherapy, Irvin D. Yalom, is an absorbing collection of ten tales of psychotherapy that uncover the mysteries, frustrations, pathos, and humor at the heart not only of the therapeutic encounter but of life itself. Yalom grapples with two of the biggest challenges everyone faces: how to live a life worth living, and how to deal with its inevitable end.
Never maudlin or cheap, Yalom's writing is funny, earthy, and often shocking, an act of radical honesty about the facts and ultimate destiny of human life that most of us spend too much time trying to avoid recognizing.
Irvin D. Yalom is an emeritus professor of psychiatry at Stanford and a psychiatrist in private practice in San Francisco. He is the author of many books, including Love's Executioner, Theory and Practice in Group Psychotherapy, and When Nietzsche Wept.
