Description

  • Introducing the book Creatures of a day : and other tales of psychotherapy written by Ervin Yalom
    Human beings’s one-day creature and other stories of psychotherapy by Ervin Yalom were first published in 2015. It is interesting to know that Nazi Akbari, a psychotherapist and translator of this book, has received written permission from Ervin Yalom to translate this book, and he has also had a detailed interview with Dr. Yalom, the text of which is added at the end of this book.

Ervin Yalom focuses on two things in this book:

first, how to deal with how to live meaningfully, and second, how to cope with the inevitable end of existence. Nazi Akbari, the book’s translator, writes about its tone: “One of the important features of Yalom’s writings is his emphasis on ‘relevance and its importance in treatment.’
He believes that improving human interactions and “communicating” with others is the key to treating mood and mental disorders. “In this book, like his other works, he has tried to show the reader the impact of human interactions by establishing a framed and demarcated relationship, while at the same time intimately and warmly.”
An overview of the chapters of the book Man of a Day and Other Stories of Psychotherapy

Irvin D. Yalom Writer, psychiatrist, and professor of psychiatry at Stanford University was born on June 13, 1931 in the United States. He is known as the psychotherapist of existentialism and has published important fiction and non-fiction books in the field of psychology.

The Yalom family immigrated to the United States from Russia fifteen years before Yalom was born. Due to family poverty, Yalom had a difficult childhood. “The only way I could relax as a child was to visit our small local library,” he says in the book Once I Found Myself. One day I decided to go to the only shelf in the library, which was arranged alphabetically. I read from the first book by John Adams to the last book on the shelf by Zoroaster. “It was somewhere in my childhood that I realized that writing a novel is the best thing a person can do.”
Important books published by Erwin Yalom include “When Nietzsche Wept”, “Group Psychotherapy”, “Mom and the Meaning of Life”, “Lying on the Sofa”, “Man is a Creature of a Day”, “One Step Closer Every Day”, ” Mentioned One Day, “The Gift of Psychotherapy,” “Mortal Creatures,” “The Spy Problem,” “Existential Psychotherapy,” “Schopenhauer Healing,” “The Art of Healing,” and “Once I Found Myself.”

Translation of the book Man of a Day’s Creature and other stories of psychotherapy into Persian.

Phoenix Publications has published the book Man of a Day and other stories of psychotherapy translated by Nazi Akbari and made it available to those who are interested. Nazi Akbari, Iranian psychologist, psychotherapist and translator, was born in 1344 in Tehran. He moved to the UK after completing his primary and secondary education and received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of East London.

He chose the field of psychotherapy for his doctorate and chose cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy as his specialty. Nazi Akbari began his career as a translator by translating scientific articles and translated his first book, The One-Day-Old Creature Man, in 2016, with the written permission of Dr. Ervin Yalom. The book was published the same year by Phoenix Publishing.

 In a part of the book, we read:

a one-day creature and other stories of psychotherapy
Dear Dr. Yalom, I need advice. I read your novel When Nietzsche Wept and I want to know if you are willing to help your co-author who has a writing block.
Andrews Bridge (3)

There is no doubt that Paul Andrews tried to get my interest and attention with this email and he succeeded. I will never touch the chest of my fellow writer. When I thought of writing blockage, I felt very lucky, because this monster has never touched me.

With these descriptions, I was eager to help him overcome this problem. Ten days later, Paul came to our appointment. I was shocked to see his appearance. For no reason did I expect to come across a middle-aged, fresh, and perhaps a little overwhelmed writer, while the one who entered my room was an old wrinkled man. The curvature of his back was so intense that he seemed to be obsessively checking the floor of my room.
As he slowly entered the room, I wondered how he had managed to get to my office, which is located on top of Rashan Hill.

As I could almost hear the moaning of his joints, I took his Menderes handbag from him. I grabbed his arm and led him to the chair.

“Morsi, Morsi, young man. how old are you? »
I replied, “I am eighty years old. »
“Oh, if I were eighty again. »
” what about you? how old are you? »
” eighty four. Yes, that’s right, eighty-four. I know I hit you. Most people think I’m in my thirties. »
I looked carefully at his face and for a moment our eyes met. I felt fascinated by the devil’s eyes and the actor’s smile in the corner of his mouth. As we sat in silence and looked at each other, in my imagination I saw both of us as the passengers of a ship experiencing the radiance and warmth of old friendship. Passengers who sit on the deck of a ship on a foggy, cold night and find that they have grown up in each other’s neighborhood.

“Ervin Yalom” is a familiar name to most people in the field of mental health.

He has been working in psychotherapy since the 1960s. Yalom, the father of “ontological” psychotherapy, is also a writer. In the present book, he explains the two main challenges of existence from the point of view of his clients and to some extent himself: struggling with how to live meaningfully and how to cope with the inevitable end of existence. The focus of this book is on the narrations of Yalom from its clients, which is written in the form of an ontological novel.

It has a humorous language and unequivocally and often shockingly and honestly tells about the hardships and struggles of human beings to be. Yalom also mentions the fruits of life such as love, friendship and family as the main means and ways of enduring life.
The book Man’s One-Day Existence contains ten short stories from the experiences of this existential psychoanalyst and psychiatrist, which, in Shiva’s language, make this collection a credible resource for therapists in education and a fascinating and instructive novel for the public. One of the important features of Ervin Yalom’s writings is his emphasis on relevance and its importance in treatment. He believes that improving human interactions and “communicating” with others is the key to treating mood and mental disorders. In this book, Yalom, like his other works, has tried to show the reader the effect of human interactions by establishing a framed and demarcated relationship, and at the same time intimate and warm.

  • About Ervin d. Yalom is the author of Man One Day Creature
    Arvin David Yalom was born on June 13, 1931 in Washington, DC, USA.
    He graduated in medicine in Boston in 1956 and in psychiatry in New York in 1960.

After completing his military service in 1963, he began his academic career at Stanford University.
As one of the most successful psychiatrists of the present century, he has been awarded the Gold Medal for his book “When Nietzsche Wept”.
His first books were specialized and attracted the attention of many psychiatric students and were translated into various languages, one of his books being taught as a textbook in universities.
In addition to writing, he is engaged in psychiatry and tends to the existentialist school.

Creatures of a day : and other tales of psychotherapy

Using his writing genius, Yalom is one step ahead of other psychologists. He has even been able to engage the general public with simple and interesting stories that tell of his own experiences and those of others in his books, as well as being popular with psychologists and other psychoanalysts.
The main audience of this great writer is young psychologists and young psychologists. His concern is psychiatrists who forget their mission in exchange for increased income or emotional issues and cause more harm to themselves and others. Relying on his writing abilities, Yalom has been able to express the principles of psychology in the form of interesting and fascinating stories and adventures.

So that we do not need to have special knowledge in the field of psychology to read the works of this author. Interestingly, Yalom claims that he always avoids accepting clients who are involved in love.

For him, treating this group of people is the hardest job in the world. He says that perhaps because love is sacred and man loves the blind and the deaf. Or maybe because he himself likes to experience such an atmosphere. Yalom, however, loves his wife dearly and considers her a source of relief for his pains and sufferings.
Yalom’s writings on existential psychology revolve around the four axes of human life that Yalom has dubbed “forgiven.” These four axes are: loneliness, lack of meaning, damping and freedom. In his writings, Yalom explains how man can respond to these four concerns in efficient or inefficient ways.
