I have been a psychotherapist for 44 years. I taught Anatomy & Physiology and my own course in Evolution, and demonstrated my therapy at New York University, City University of New York, The New School, and Downstate Medical, State University of New York. 

THE GOOD SCREAM is the first book describing in detail how bringing out fear, pain (love hunger) and anger in a supportive environment heals at depths unreachable in other modalities. You are welcome to use these methods to augment your present approach.


Publications by Nolan Saltzman

  • THERAPY WARS, acclaimed by Distinguished Prof. A. A. Arnold as “A tour de force unique in the annals of psychotherapy” was chosen book-of-the-month of two professional book clubs.
  • Nine journal articles
  • Chapters in two books on therapy
  • 14 Clinical Exchanges in the international journal JIEP. I sent vignettes of a patient (disguised in superficial details) to sets of four or five of the world’s most respected therapists, who outlined the therapy they would undertake with the patient. Then, they commented on each other’s treatment plans. 62 eminent therapists participated.
  • A monograph on emotional vocalization
