When Helping Starts to Hurt: A New Look at Burnout among Psychotherapistsby William N. Grosch, David C. Olsen
A career in mental health can be rewarding and deeply satisfying. Yet, when clinicians fail to maintain balance between work, family, and leisure, they are vulnerable to burnout. In addition to offering advice on preventing burnout, the book presents a model for treatment. This is illustrated in short vignettes and one extended case study. The authors share their optimism that burnout is not a given and that, through the use of professional peer group support, supervision, and individual therapy, it can be avoided or overcome.
