Therapists and other helping professionals, such as teachers,
doctors and nurses, social workers, and clergy, work in highly
demanding fields and can suffer from burnout, compassion fatigue,
and secondary stress. This happens when they give more attention to
their clients well being than their own. Both students and
practitioners in these fields will find this book an essential
guide to striking an optimal balance between self-care and
other-care. The authors describe the joys and hazards of the work,
the long road from novice to senior practitioner, the essence of
burnout, ways to maintain the professional and personal self,
methods experts use to maintain vitality, and a self-care action
plan. Vivid real-life examples and self-reflection questions will
engage and motivate readers to think about their own work and ways
to enhance their own resilience. Eloquently written and supported
by extensive research, helping professionals will find this a
valuable resource both when a novice and when an experienced
