Introducing Tea with Freud

By Dr. Steven B. Sandler, M.D.

"A highly engaging and very informative book which I would heartily recommend."  -- 5-Star Review on

Tea with Freud is an invitation to go behind the closed door of the psychotherapist’s office to get an insider’s look at common emotional problems and their treatment. Listen to verbatim dialogue of actual people in therapy, and learn about an effective approach to resolving their difficulties.

Visit with the father of psychotherapy, Sigmund Freud, in turn-of-the-century Vienna, and hear an imaginary but illuminating debate with Freud about what helps people to make changes and recover their psychological health. You may be surprised to learn that the answers to many psychological struggles can still be found in Freud’s original ideas, as well as in modern findings from psychology, child development, and memory research.

"I was pleasantly surprised to find myself completely engaged with this book from the first chapter. Sandler brings Freud's ideas and theories to life in such a vibrant manner that I felt as though I was sitting there chatting with Freud myself." -- 5-star Review on

Part case study, part fiction, Dr. Sandler's newest book is a readable, entertaining introduction to some of the most important ideas —old and new— in the field of psychotherapy.  It will change the way you think about the nature of emotions, the root of emotional suffering, and the effectiveness of modern “talk therapy.”
