The Family Life of Psychotherapists: Clinical Implications

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1987 - Psychology - 160 pages
All mental health professionals will want to read this exciting book to better understand the reciprocal impact of their professional and family lives. Psychotherapists who frequently work with family clients may find difficulty in making the transition from work to their own family life and back again. Contributors examine the transpositions of personal family life and objective task-oriented work life that occur, with suggestions of how to recognize and cope with the changes. Experts also explore the extraordinary challenges psychotherapists face when treating fellow therapists with family-related problems, or when they themselves need those services.
