About Irvin Yalom MD

One of the pioneers in Existential Psychotherapy and Group Psychotherapy, Dr. Irvin Yalom has followed a professional career as a psychiatrist courageously addressing the most poignant challenges of living, inside the therapeutic relationship and beyond.

Existential Psychotherapy

Unlike most thought-leaders in the world of psychotherapy, Dr. Irvin Yalom had no interest in developing a new therapy approach. Instead, he was more interested in how the universal challenges of living could be addressed across theoretical orientations and modalities.

Having studied many of the great philosophers and being strongly influenced by the work of his Existential Psychotherapy predecessor and mentor Psychologist Dr. Rollo May, Yalom came to appreciate how the wisdom from philosophy could become a powerful bridge to help his patients in the psychotherapy context.

Like Existential philosophy, Existential Psychotherapy embraces the inherent paradoxes of living. Betwixt and between birth and death, we all face the challenge of seeking meaning in our tenuous and uncertain tenure of existence, longing for both freedom, while simultaneously experiencing the poignant desire to avoid isolation.

A love story of couple who have been together since Irv was 15 and Marilyn was 14, now at 85 and 86, they have and continue to share a full life with each other and their four children and seven grandchildren.

Humble Beginnings

The son of hard-working Russian immigrants who opened a grocery store after arriving, Yalom’s early life was very humble, living in a small rat and roach-infested flat above the family’s store until moving to a clean and more spacious home when he was fourteen. When he was fifteen, Irvin met his first love, Marilyn, who was to become the beloved love of his life.

Even though the couple was informed that they might have fertility challenges, the doctor couldn’t have been further from the mark as they were able to bear four beautiful children to share their lives with.

Road To Psychiatry

After finishing his undergraduate studies at George Washington University, Yalom completed his medical training as an MD from Boston University (marrying Marilyn midway through med school), as well as his internship at Mount Sinai Hospital and his residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital. After finishing his medical training, Yalom headed to Hawaii with his wife and small children where he served for two years in the army as part of the mandatory draft before finally settling in Palo Alto at Stanford University, eventually working his way up to Professor of Psychiatry. He is now an emeritus professor at Stanford and still continues his psychiatry practice in San Francisco and Palo Alto.

Innovative Author – Bridging Psychology & Philosophy in Unprecedented

Launching his writing career, Dr. Irvin Yalom’s first piece, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy” was a masterpiece that is still the gold standard for training therapists about the ins and outs of group therapy.

Ways

With a vision for applying his knowledge of psychotherapy to extend far beyond the four walls of his consulting room and in artistic form, Dr. Irvin Yalom released Love’s Executioner that took the world by storm, as well as inspired therapist to attend more deeply to their inner experiences and processes that invariably affect the therapeutic process.

Immersed in his life as a psychiatrist in academia, Yalom’s first book released was the textbook The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy which has become the respected seminal classic text for group therapy internationally. While he also published another highly acclaimed textbook, Existential Psychotherapy, Yalom’s creative ventures to broaden the applications of psychotherapy took him down other paths as a writer in both the nonfiction and fiction genres.

Breaking the mold with his bestselling Love’s Executioner and Other Tales of Psychotherapy, there was no turning back as his humanization of the therapy process and his unique voice as an author/therapist. In addition to his other heart-opening and paradigm-shifting non-fiction books, such as Momma and the Meaning of Life: Tales of Psychotherapy, The Gift of Therapy , Every Day Gets a Little Closer: A Twice-Told Therapy, Creatures of a Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy, and Staring at the Sun, Yalom took another adventurous leap when he began immersing himself into the creation of historical fiction and other creative storytelling as another means to teach (especially therapists) about the complexities of the human condition and psychotherapy process itself, starting with When Nietzche Wept: A Novel of Obsession, Lying on the Couch: A Novel and later The Schopenhauer Cure  and The Yalom Reader: Selections from the Work of a Master Therapist and Storyteller.

BECOMING MYSELF: A Psychiatrist’s Memoir

“One of the Guardian‘s best books of 2017″

“Bestselling writer and psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom puts himself on the couch in a lapidary memoir

 
Irvin D. Yalom has made a career of investigating the lives of others. In this profound memoir, he turns his writing and his therapeutic eye on himself. He opens his story with a nightmare: He is twelve, and is riding his bike past the home of an acne-scarred girl. Like every morning, he calls out, hoping to befriend her, “Hello Measles!” But in his dream, the girl’s father makes Yalom understand that his daily greeting had hurt her. For Yalom, this was the birth of empathy; he would not forget the lesson. As Becoming Myself unfolds, we see the birth of the insightful thinker whose books have been a beacon to so many.
 
This is not simply a man’s life story, Yalom’s reflections on his life and development are an invitation for us to reflect on the origins of our own selves and the meanings of our lives.” (Amazon description)
