Evgeniya Karlin “The route is built. Profession guide for psychologists and psychotherapists".
Small in volume, parting words to the beginning of practice by an excellent author and practitioner, one of Irvin Yalom's teachers, whose book we started this list with.
Rollo May "The Art of Counseling".
A classic textbook describing classical theories. Structured and intelligible about all the concepts that underlie the various psychotherapeutic directions.
Larry Hjelle and Daniel Ziegler "Theories of Personality".
A wonderful work on existential psychotherapy, relevant and valuable to anyone who is studying psychotherapy, who is starting to practice and who wants to understand the deep questions about life, meaning and death that every person raises in one way or another. And, of course, we love Yalom's other books and recommend them for reading.
Irvin Yalom, "Existential Psychotherapy".
A basic detailed textbook on the diagnosis of personality types and recommendations for working with different types of clients / patients. It is very interesting and immediately all the acquaintances open up in a new perspective. Must-have, must-read.
Nancy McWilliams "Psychoanalytic Diagnosis: Understanding Personality Structure in the Clinical Process".
Explained in plain language. And it should be noted that Irina Mlodik has a whole series of concise books about types, which McWilliams writes about in the book mentioned above. First, Irina gives an artistic vignette on the topic, and then gives a psychological understanding.
Irina Mlodik "The House of Cards. Psychotherapeutic assistance to clients with borderline disorders".
One of my favorite books in terms of form, describing cases from the practice of a psychotherapist. This book will be interesting not only for you as a future specialist, but also on the personal level.
James Bugenthal "The Science of Being Alive".
A basic book on the General Model of Psychotherapy and the Integrative Approach, providing an excellent structure for organizing further knowledge. A scientific book written in a simple language with practical examples and life stories from the author's professional path.
