Book Description :

The definitive account of existential psychotherapy. Existential therapy is practiced throughout the world. But until now, it has lacked a coherent structure. In Existential Psychotherapy, Irvin Yalom finds the essence of existential psychotherapy, synthesizing its historical background, core tenets, and usefulness to the practice. Organized around what Yalom identifies as the four "ultimate concerns of life" -- death, freedom, isolation, and meaninglessness -- the book takes up the meaning of each existential concern and the type of conflict that springs from our confrontation with each. He shows how these concerns are manifested in personality and psychopathology, and how treatment can be helped by our knowledge of them. Drawing from clinical experience, empirical research, philosophy, and great literature, Yalom provides an intellectual home base for those psychotherapists who have sensed the incompatibility of orthodox theories with their own clinical experience, and opens new doors for empirical research. The fundamental concerns of therapy and the central issues of human existence are woven together here as never before, with intellectual and clinical results that will surprise and enlighten all readers.

The definitive, up-to-date overview of existential therapy Comprising a diverse range of theories and practices, existential therapy is a philosophically-informed approach to counselling or psychotherapy—stressing the philosophical exploration of an individual's experiences while emphasizing the individual's freedom and responsibility to facilitate a higher degree of meaning and well-being.

The Wiley World Handbook of Existential Therapy provides an inclusive overview of the history, development, theory, philosophy, applications, and practices of the field. Inspired by the first World Congress for Existential Therapy in London in 2015, this timely volume brings together the entire field of existential therapy in its current form and examines its development over the past century. The editors, all experts in their respective areas, have assembled a team of authors and practitioners to present in-depth, systematic coverage of the principal forms of existential theory and therapeutic practice, present-day issues and challenges, contemporary developments and research, and newly evolving forms of existential therapy around the world.

Book Description :

Existential psychotherapy has emerged as an approach that is distinctively different to that of the other models and systems within psychotherapy. It provides a set of significant challenges to, and critiques of, contemporary Western psychotherapy both at the level of theory and of practice. Although a substantial amount of writing that seeks to describe and delineate the theoretical underpinnings of existential psychotherapy already exists, this is not the case with texts dealing with the application of theory in the form of practice. Practising Existential Psychotherapy examines the unique qualities and possibilities of an existential approach to psychotherapy. Drawn from Ernesto Spinelli's own experience as an internationally recognised theorist, lecturer and practitioner, the book's overall aim is to provide a thorough and accessible explication of existential psychotherapy in practice. Beginning with an overview of the theoretical underpinnings and distinguishing features of existential psychotherapy, the text describes and develops a three-phase structural model for its practice. As well as describing the key components of each phase, the text provides descriptive examples and topic-focused exercises designed to assist readers in developing their own practice-based understanding of existential psychotherapy. Ernesto Spinelli is a Professor in the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent's College, London.

Book Description :

This book presents a genetic-phenomenological approach of existential psychotherapy, articulating its theoretical underpinnings with principles supported by scientific evidence and concluding with clinical examples.The volume also offers a clear perspective about the relational stances and the therapeutic interventions of existential psychotherapy and how both can be combined and applied in the clinical practice. It begins with an overview and update on psychotherapy research, from which a set of therapeutic principles are drawn. It then conceptualizes the theoretical underpinnings of the genetic-phenomenological approach, based on three main aspects: inner-time consciousness, the experiential self, and the passive synthesis theory. It concludes with practical examples of case conceptualizations and clinical cases. This work is particularly relevant for trainees, students, and professionals of clinical psychology and psychotherapy, but also other mental health professionals that work in the area of the psychological and psychotherapeutic interventions.
