'When Yalom publishes something - anything - I buy it, and he never disappoints. He's an amazing storyteller, a gorgeous writer, a great, generous, compassionate thinker, and - quite rightly - one of the world's most influential mental healthcare practitioners' Nicola Barker, Guardian Best Books of 2017 'Wonderful, compelling and as insightful about its subject and about the times he lived in as you could hope for. A fabulous read' Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone Irvin D. Yalom has made a career of investigating the lives of others. In Becoming Myself, his long-awaited memoir, he turns his therapeutic eye on himself, delving into the relationships that shaped him and the groundbreaking work that made him famous. The first-generation child of immigrant Russian Jews, Yalom grew up in a lower-class neighbourhood in Washington DC. Determined to escape its confines, he set his sights on becoming a doctor. An incredible ascent followed: we witness his start at Stanford Medical School amid the cultural upheavals of the 1960s, his turn to writing fiction as a means of furthering his exploration of the human psyche and his rise to international prominence. Yalom recounts his revolutionary work in group psychotherapy and how he became the foremost practitioner of existential psychotherapy, a method that draws on the wisdom of great thinkers over the ages. He reveals the inspiration for his many seminal books, including Love's Executioner and When Nietzche Wept, which meld psychology and philosophy to arrive at arresting new insights into the human condition. Interweaving the stories of his most memorable patients with personal tales of love and regret, Becoming Myself brings readers close to Yalom's therapeutic technique, his writing process and his family life.

A deeply personal and electrifying memoir by Ellen Burstyn, renowned actress and six-time Academy Award nominee.

This is the graceful story of a personal and professional quest, a life-long journey-by turns triumphant and terrifying, tragic and funny, thoughtful and illuminating.

They revealed themselves through stories of personal confusion and discovery, pain and overcoming, rejection and celebration." --From Willa Shalit's Introduction The stories shared by these sixty-seven remarkable women -- writers, actors, musicians, journalists, activists -- include: --Kate Winslet on the media's eagerness to distort women's images. --Zane on her belief in a woman's right to satisfaction. --Lillian Vernon on being a trailblazing entrepreneur. --J.K. Rowling on the transformation wrought by giving birth. Filled with sparkling insights and powerful reflections, Becoming Myself is a gift for every woman.

God has dreams—just for you Becoming Myself is a hope-filled book for anyone who wonders if her life will ever change—if she will ever change.In Stasi Eldredge’s most intimate book yet, she shares her own struggles with self-worth, weight, and her past as she shows readers how God is faithfully unveiling who we truly are. Stasi urges you to lay down your past thoughts about yourself and receive God’s incredible dreams for you instead. We cannot heal ourselves. We cannot become ourselves by ourselves. But we are not by ourselves. The King of love wants to help us become. God desires to restore us—the real us. As he heals our inner life, he calls us to rise to the occasion of our lives. The most important journey any woman can take is the journey into becoming her true self through the love of God. It's a beautiful paradox. The more of God’s you become, the more yourself you become—the “self” he had in mind when he thought of you before the creation of the world. Discover your truest self—the woman God created you to be—in Becoming Myself.

-'Now with God's help, I shall become myself.'Spiritual growth is a pursuit. It does not happen naturally or without effort. Just like the athlete who trains for a competition, we too must train our hearts and minds to be like Jesus. Our spiritual muscles, like our physical ones, become weak and ineffective when they are not stretched and exercised regularly. Often, Christians may find they are caught up in the 'generality' of living a religious lifestyle, but to truly become the Lord's, we must give him time to work with us. Our days may be so filled with activity and service that we seldom take the time to ask ourselves who it is that God created us to be. If you long for the discipline, order, and focus that Christ speaks of in the Word, then you are longing to discover who God created you to be. See yourself through God's eyes in Becoming Myself, Becoming His.Author Kay Watson lives in Pensacola, Florida, with Scott, her husband of twenty-eight years, and two sons. She has taught in church for over twenty-five years, written curriculum for women and children, and has served as the Women's Ministry Coordinator for the Gateway Church of Christ.

A pioneering philanthropist and daughter of American royalty reveals what it was like to grow up in one of the world’s most famous families. The great-granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller, Eileen Rockefeller learned in childhood that while wealth and fame could open any door, they could not buy a feeling of personal worth. The privileges of having servants and lavish summer homes were offset by her parents’ thoughtful yet firm lessons in social obligation, at times by her mother’s dark depressions and mercurial moods, and the competition for attention among her siblings. In adulthood, Rockefeller has yearned to be seen not as an icon but as a woman and mother with a normal life, and like all of us, she had to learn to find her own way. Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself is an affirmation of how family shapes our identity and the ways we contribute to the larger family of life, regardless of our origins.

When author Margot S. Biestman was born in 1931, her grandmother told her she came into the world beautiful because she'd been kissed by an angel. The proof: her two dimples, one on each blessed cheek. In Becoming Myself, Biestman offers an extensive and insightful commentary on how personal and professional experiences lead to self-examination and growth. Along with examples of her poems and other creative expressions, she reflects on a youth living among a family of artists, growing up in San Francisco, and becoming a teacher. Biestman's artistic nature has informed her life's journey as a maverick who chose not to be boxed in by the social environment she was born into. Becoming Myself: An Eighty-Seven-Year Journey of Engaging the Senses through Breath and Creative Expression resonates with the courage to stay true to oneself and to forge a different and inspiring path.

'A series of accidents has brought you this book. You may think of it not as a book, but as a library, an elevator, an amateur performance in a nearby theatre. Open it to the table of contents. Turn to the page that sounds the most interesting to you. Read a sentence or two. Repeat the process. Read this book as a creative act, and feel encouraged.' 39 Microlectures: In Proximity of Performance is a collection of miniature stories, parables, musings and thinkpieces on the nature of reading, writing, art, collaboration, performance, life, death, the universe and everything. It is a unique and moving document for our times, full of curiosity and wonder, thoughtfulness and pain. Matthew Goulish, founder member of performance group Goat Island, meditates on these and other diverse themes, proving, along the way, that the boundaries between poetry and criticism, and between creativity and theory, are a lot less fixed than they may seem. The book is revelatory, solemn yet at times hilarious, and genuinely written to inspire - or perhaps provoke - creativity and thought.

Becoming a Leader Is Becoming Yourself

People yearn for leaders who are authentic, who show their own face and not a game face, who find and use their voice in appropriate ways and act with a tangible sense of integrity. Those who engage in the process of leadership--each of us, at some point--want to do so as our true self. But staying true to one's self is not easy. We are continually moving in and out of authenticity. We are present one moment and absent the next. We often say "yes" when we want to say "no." We act from our core values some of the time, but give them a wink when the heat is on. There is no formula for being integral and authentic. Becoming and being ourselves requires confidence and courage. Drawing on the author's 40 years in leadership training, this book discusses the things we can do along the way--recognizing our strengths and limitations, speaking truth to power, trusting our companions--as we strive to fulfill our leadership potential. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of "client-centered therapy." His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten. A new introduction by Peter Kramer sheds light on the significance of Dr. Rogers's work today. New discoveries in the field of psychopharmacology, especially that of the antidepressant Prozac, have spawned a quick-fix drug revolution that has obscured the psychotherapeutic relationship. As the pendulum slowly swings back toward an appreciation of the therapeutic encounter, Dr. Rogers's "client-centered therapy" becomes particularly timely and important.
