Psychotherapists are often deeply affected by the therapeutic relationships they form with patients. This book studies the impact of psychotherapeutic practice on the personal life and relationships of the therapist, examining the various personal benefits and hazards which result from conducting psychotherapy. Provides a novel approach to care for the psychotherapist, offering thoughtful, concrete suggestions for the prevention and treatment of various forms of therapist work-related impairment or disability. Avoids stressing one particular theoretical orientation over another while it confronts stereotypes regarding a career in psychotherapy. Topics covered include: the factors leading to the decision to become a psychotherapist; the impact of physical and psychological isolation on the therapist; effects of pyschotherapeutic practice on therapist's interpersonal relationships; therapist impairment; and therapist burnout. By providing information regarding the incidence, etiology, development, prevention and treatment of work-realted dysfunction, this text assists the therapist in formulating a comprehensive self-care program.
