Summary

To feed the interior life of the counselor is not only a sensible act for the helper, it is a true act of generosity for those they serve as well. This book directs counselors to consider their own sense of self and how they are-and are not-living a personally and professionally meaningful, mindful life. Each chapter presents a theme in a way that mental health professionals will find helpful and immediately applicable to understanding their own journey as they seek to reach out to help others in need.

Dr. ROBERT J. WICKS received his doctorate in psychology from Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia. Presently, he is a professor at Loyola University Maryland. He has spoken on Capitol Hill to members of Congress and their Chiefs of Staff, and at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Mayo Clinic, and Harvard's Children's Hospital on his major area of expertise: the prevention of secondary stress. He has also addressed thousands of educators and professionals, spoken at the FBI Academy, and addressed caregivers in China, Vietnam, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and South Africa. In his practice, Dr. Wicks focuses on working with psychotherapists, physicians, nurses, educators, relief workers, lawyers, corporate executives, persons in full-time ministry, and members of the military. He has published over forty-five books for both professionals and the general public, and is the coauthor, with Mary Beth Werdel, of Primer on Posttraumatic Growth: An Introduction and Guide (Wiley).
