Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Therapist burnout is a pressing issue, and self-care is possible only when therapists actively help themselves. The authors examine the literature from neurobiology, social psychology, and folk psychology in order to explain how therapists suffer from an excess of empathy for their clients, and then they present strategies for dealing with burnout and stress.

Book News Annotation:

Rothschild (International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies) challenges current thinking about the ways in which therapists are affected by their clients. Her perspective on the therapeutic process yields strategies for mental health professionals who want to maintain their own health and well-being. Drawing from recent findings in neurobiology, social psychology, and folk psychology, she identifies three physio-emotional processes that pose risks to a professional's well-being, and gives suggestions for minimizing the risks.
