The first 40 mini-essays address the therapeutic relationship, stressing how Yalom works by keeping the content in the moment rather than analyzing past conflicts. The next 10 sections describe how he discusses the issues of death, freedom, and life meaning with patients. Seven sections are devoted to working with dreams, and the remainder of the book is composed of miscellaneous observations and advice on the conduct of therapy with its joys and hazards.

When you make a mistake with a client, acknowledge it. According to Yalom, any attempt at covering the error up will only backfire because the client will ultimately sense that you are not being upfront with her/him. Hence, it will have a negative impact on the therapy.
I am a huge believer in working with what shows up in the hear and now, individually and in groups. The process oriented group therapy groups I ran were some of the most powerful change experiences my clients had ever had.

Through therapy, the public cell should grow larger and the others should shrink. In other words, the patients should share more about themselves, explore themselves deeper, and learn to see themselves as others see them. This can be done through both individual and group therapy.

The difficulty and cost of training psychotherapists properly is well known. It is far easier to provide a series of classes while ignoring the more challenging personal components of training. Despite the fact that the therapist's self-insight and emotional maturity are critical for successful psychotherapy, knowledge and technical skills are the focus of most training programs. As a result, the therapist's personal growth is either marginalized or ignored. The Making of a Therapist counters this trend by offering therapists a personal account of this important inner journey.
The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement and father of client-centered therapy, based his life's work on his fundamental belief in the human potential for growth. A Way of Being was written in the early 1980s, near the end of Carl Rogers's career, and serves as a coda to his classic On Becoming a Person. More philosophical than his earlier writings, it traces his professional and personal development and ends with a prophetic call for a more humane future.
A Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Siegel is one of the revolutionary global innovators in the integration of brain science into the practice of psychotherapy.

The Gift of Therapy is primarily a book targeting therapists: especially those who already know something about Yalom and existential therapy and are familiar with the theoretical aspects of the practice.
Born to Russian parents in Washington D.C., Yalom developed a personal model of existential psychotherapy in the 1970s and his 1980 book Existential Psychotherapy is considered the classical introduction to the form.
I worry where the next generation of effective psychotherapists will be trained. Not in psychiatry residency training programs. Psychiatry is on the verge of abandoning the field of psychotherapy. Young psychiatrists are forced to specialize in psychopharmacology because third-party payers now reimburse for psychotherapy only if it is delivered by low-fee (in other words, minimally trained) practitioners. It seems certain that the present generation of psychiatric clinicians, skilled in both dynamic psychotherapy and in pharmacological treatment, is an endangered species.
Because, in theory, you can say that existential psychotherapy is all about the givens of existence, but in practice, it would be both contra-productive and fruitless to force upon a patient a discussion which includes any of them explicitly.
