Product Description

About the Author

Takeo Doi was born in 1920 and graduated from Tokyo University in 1942. In 1950, he went on to study at the Meninger School of Psychiatry in Topeka, Kansas, which marked the beginning of his many visits to the United States. While serving as psychiatrist-in-chief at St Luke's International Hospital, Tokyo, Doi initiated seminars in psychotherapy at Tokyo School of Medicine. He subsequently became professor at Tokyo University and then later appointed director of the National Institute of Mental Health, Tokyo. His seven books concerning amae were published by the Kobundo press between 1971 and 2001, and his eight-volume selected writings, Doi Takeo senshu, were published by Iwanami Shoten in 2000.
