East meets West in Complementary Approaches to Psychotherapy
This is the first book I’ve come across that juxtaposes Western psychotherapy with an approach based upon Buddhist psychology and fundamental Buddhist views. The author’s long association with Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche is obvious in what he describes as the Fruition Approach to psychotherapy. However, I also sense, perhaps coincidentally, the influence of Karen Horney, Eric Fromm, etc. I found the book very readable and applicable to practice.
