Abstract:
Taking a frank assessment of the risks involved in psychotherapy, such as compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatization, this book challenges current thinking about the ways in which therapists are affected by their clients. Based on the latest neurobiological research and drawing from the literature in social psychology and folk psychology, the author identifies three major processes that can, when left unchecked, pose enormous risks to a professional's well-being.
