Your therapist is judging you Sorry it sucks I know the idea is that they are objective observers looking out for your best interest rather than the often hypercritical dismissive average human being with a capacity for conversational boredom and bad advice but they re not Especially not Dr Yalom Dr Yalom hates fat people he develops a sexual attraction to one of his patients multiple personalities and encourages her to incorporate this split self into her overarching self so she ll be a entertaining patient and won t be so pathetic in general he successfully convinces a lady to euthanize her incontinent dog in order to bolster her sex life jerk he sizes his patients up as hopeless human beings rambling about how annoying certain cases were for him with details describing each individual while masking their identities to protect confidentiality in an almost Deconstructing Harry Leslie s not Lucy sort of way He is walking a lawsuit razor s edge and I wouldn t be the least bit surprised if one of these folks showed up at his house with a pistol There s not a chance in hell that I d go see him after reading this I mean he gets pretty catty pretty oh shut up you whiny little bitch He reaaally lays into that fat lady He calls people names He relays very personal veryvery embarrassing information and then scoffs at it As off putting as this is though it s also one of the things that make the book stick out Honesty One of the best scenes in the tv Hannibal is where Dr Lecter s most annoying patient is relaying a fantasy alternate reality where he saves Michael Jackson from death by being his best friend The look on Hannibal s face and condescending tone of his voice is priceless god you are insufferable blubbering excuse for a human being Cannibal or not shrinkydinks are just people at the end of the day with the same penchant for annoyance as you or I the same neuroses and triggers Just people Your therapist is judging youTo Dr Yalom s credit he is not asserting that his preconceived notions about his past patients were fair or accurate This book is as much about the individual cases he has dealt with as about his growth as a psychiatrist his separating of his own prejudices from the therapeutic process In that sense it is both intriguing and kinda weirdly narcissistic This book seems less for people with a passing interest in psychotherapy and for future head docs who need to really understand that in their chosen field they are as much up against their inherent selves as they are the problems their patients are seeking help facing The cases are mostly what I d assume to be pretty garden variety but they still hold interest Well except for that last one where it was all about analyzing some dude s dreams because snooze I could fall asleep listening to my loved ones dreams let alone those of some average stranger It wasn t a waste of time at all but I m not sure I d recommend it Mostly because of that thing with the dog
