Summary "The Therapist's Guide to Self Care is the essential text for every therapist who wants to have a healthy, satisfying, and fulfilling career. A guide to help therapists create the job and the life they want, it provides practical tips and step-by-step strategies to help therapists care for themselves. Drawing on a wide variety of sources including research findings and her own experience counseling therapists, this text examines the stresses of the psychotherapy profession, asking readers to take stock of these in their lives, provides tips on managing the external environment, setting up home and work life that promotes general well being; and offers tools for management of the internal environment of thoughts and feelings. It addresses a broad range of issues of psychotherapist self-care, covering a remarkable number of practice issues and concerns that therapists frequently experience, but that are rarely discussed in training or practice. Written in an informal, easy-to-read, and entertaining style, and packed with useful information, it presents specific suggestions for pragmatic, practical, and self-care aspects of practice."--Jacket.
