Help for the Helper
The Psychophysiology of Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious TraumaBook - 2006
"Taking a frank assessment of the risks involved in psychotherapy, such as compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatization, Help for the Helper 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, Rothschild identifies three major processes that can, when left unchecked, pose enormous risks to a professional's well-being."--Jacket.
