Jorge Bucay was born in 1949 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Jorge Bucay has been a doctor and a very important psychotherapist at the Gestalt School. He specialised in the treatment of mental illness, initially working in hospitals and clinics, and lecturing in institutions, colleges, theaters as well as on radio and television stations.
Many books of the famous psychotherapist have been translated into many languages.
The famous writer and psychotherapist Jorge Bucay gave a letter of 30 valuable tips to his daughter. His words, extremely touching but above all true and comprehensible with immense substance and utility.
Below is the letter, which is worth reading:
"Before I die, my daughter, I want to be sure I teached you":
