Product description


"Robert Wicks has written a book that could be described as 'the therapist's companion.' It stresses the sacred mission and importance of the work of psychotherapy and encourages therapists to care for themselves as they care for their clients. Since the work of the psychotherapist relies so heavily on the use of self, the self must be cared for and replenished in order to do the work competently over the courese of one's career. A very thought provoking and helpful book that is highly recommended for the trainee and experienced therapist alike to foster their resilience and effectiveness as therapists."--Christine A. Courtois, Ph.D., Psychologist and author of Healing the Incest Wound: Adult Survivors in Therapy and Recollections of Sexual Abuse: Treatment Principles and Guidelines "As therapists we need to stop and reflect, be aware of our negative emotions, get new perspectives, learn to self-care, and know how to untie the knots in our inner life. Robert Wicks has written an engaging book reminding us of this. It is packed with anecdotes and quotes from psychologists, Zen masters, philosophers, and useful advice from positive psychology as well as exercises for self -reflection."--Stephen Joseph, Ph.D., Professor, Center for Trauma, Resilience and Growth (CTRG), University of Nottingham, UK "It is not easy to be empathically present to others who are suffering deeply, particularly in this era of shrinking resources. In The Resilient Clinician, Dr. Wicks compassionately identifies the many ways in which we become worn out by clinical work, and weaves together a rich tapestry of self-care strategies that we can use to revitalize ourselves personally and professionally. Drawing upon a wealth of sources, from studies of burnout to the teachings of spiritual masters, he has created a practical, honest, step-by-step guide to the self reflection and nurturing that all clinicians need to both live and work well."--Ronald D. Siegel, Psy.D., Clinical Faculty, Harvard Medical School, Faculty and Board of Directors, The Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy "A main strength of the book is that it is written from the erspective of a working therapist. It places self-care in he context of both work with clients, and within the wider ontext of employers, funding bodies and societies...Where he author is reflective or posing questions for reflection, e is at his best. Although aimed at practicing therapists, he book is also useful for supervisors, aiding restorative ork with supervisees."--Therapy Today "The book is very useful as a manual to reflect upon oneself as a therapist. Personal experiences of the author invite the reader to follow his path or the path of many other cited authors. Being a concise book, it meets the demands of busy clinicians...offer[s] some sense of direction with respect to secondary stress prevention for clinicians by self-care and mindfulness."--PsycCritiques --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
