Leaving It at the Office: A Guide to Psychotherapist Self-Care

Author: John C Norcross

Wise, warm, and authoritative, this straight-talking guide addresses the real-world struggles that psychotherapists face in balancing their professional and personal lives. It demonstrates that recognizing and tending to your one's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs not only feels good—it also leads to more effective and ethical practice as a clinician. The book describes and illustrates 12 self-care strategies that are grounded in the authors' extensive research and clinical experience. Interwoven throughout are insights and recommendations from other master therapists, "self-care checklists," and suggestions for further reading. Lively and engaging, this is an ideal resource for a broad range of professionals and students.
