Mental health professionals provide better care to their clients when they care for themselves. This acclaimed highly practical guide - now revised and expanded with even more self-care strategies - helps busy psychotherapists balance their personal and professional lives.

The book presents 13 research-informed self-care strategies and offers concrete methods for integrating them into daily life. Featuring examples and insights from master therapists, every chapter concludes with a self-care checklist.
