It was not meant to be simply a means of alleviating symptoms and improving social adjustment but was meant to promote the creativity and inborn aptitudes and talents of the patient. Now, managed care threatens the very existence of long-term, curative psychotherapy. Freeing the Human Spirit resists that threat to keep the flame of psychotherapy alive. This approach is based on the teachings of Hellmuth Kaiser and is nondirective, nonanalytic, communication-oriented, and similar to the person-centered approach advocated by Carl Rogers.Freeing the Human Spirit consists primarily of twenty-one case vignettes intended for readers who are involved or interested in psychotherapy and psychiatric private practice.

Psychotherapy is best understood in the context of actual clinical transactions between therapist and patient. There is also an essay on the development of nondirective therapy. This approach holds the promise of increasing the effectiveness of therapy and achieving results that are more meaningful than simple alleviation of symptoms, which leaves the patient vulnerable to relapse and recidivism.This volume of clinical vignettes reveals the mature capacities of a deeply thoughtful and humane physician after a lifetime of therapeutic work.

The key to freeing the humanity of his patients lies in his fully present and authentic interactions with them. The connections between Fiermans personal qualities and his technical mastery are truly seamless. Eugene B. Brody, M.D., Professor and Chairman Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Maryland, Visiting Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
