What therapists are saying…

“This course provides a profound and rare glimpse into the workings of one of the living legends in psychotherapy. “Welcome to the human race,” says Dr. Irvin Yalom, in his wise and gentle voice. Viewers are invited into actual segments of work with clients. The experience is enhanced by insightful comments and thoughts shared throughout with Dr. Yalom’s son and fellow psychotherapist, Victor Yalom. “If there was a risk you’d be willing to take, what would it be?” “Have you disappointed yourself in any way?” Existential therapy at its finest—not to be missed.”

—Rita Sommers-Flanagan, PhD & John Sommers-Flanagan PhD, Co-Authors of Clinical Interviewing and many other texts.
“Irvin Yalom and the Art of Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool not just allowing therapists to examine Existentialism as a theory of understanding presenting issues, but also, how to examine clinical relationships in the-here-and-now. Further, the case-studies with specific clients provide an opportunity at examining the nuances of masterful clinical work in the presence of diverse presenting issues.”

—Aaron Smith, PhD, Assistant Professor of Counseling, Western Washington University
“We all learn the foundational work in school, but now we can see a founder at work! This series provides novice and expert professionals alike the opportunity to witness the ideals of therapy artfully delivered in a simple, easy to follow manner. This series would be useful for intern, practicum, pre-practicum students, or community mental health agencies looking to visually enhance their training and supervision settings with a trusted name in the field.”

—Bill Owenby, ABD, MC, LPC-S, Community Agency Therapist
