Attachment theory tells us that most of the disruptions in attachment that impact human relationships and cause so much pain come from fear—fear of abandonment, fear of loss, fear of extinction. Explore with the foremost practitioner of existential psychotherapy how therapists can confront their own fears, so they can authentically help clients explore the existential terrors that underlie so much of human suffering.
Irvin Yalom, Ph.D., probably the most famous storyteller in the field of psychotherapy, is the author of such acclaimed works as Love’s Executioner, When Nietzsche Wept, and Momma and the Meaning of Life. His latest book is Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death.
