Abstract

Existential Therapies provides students and practitioners with an invaluable introduction to the diverse and multifaceted world of existential therapeutic practices. Focusing on practical, face-to-face work with clients, the book:introduces readers to six key existential therapies; discusses key figures and their contributions, including Irvin Yalom, Emmy van Deurzen, Ernesto Spinelli, Viktor Frankl and R D Laing; compares and contrasts the various approaches; highlighting areas of commonality and difference; outlines key debates within the existential therapy field and provides detailed suggestions for further reading. Existential Therapies offers students and practitioners of all orientations much that they can incorporate into their own therapeutic work, and each approach is vividly brought to life through therapist-client dialogues and case studies.
