Excellent Read for Those in the Helping Profession
Absolutely if they work in the helping profession.
The book is full of hernest and difficult discussions about being a therapist.
I can't say I had a favorite section. Personally I think I benefited from the discussions on what good therapists have done wrong as well the section on identifying projection and burn out. The author completely humanizes the field of therapy while also paying homage to what we do on a daily basis. I loved everything about this book.
I would say this book made me smile with eyes slightly wider open. It made me feel more comfortable with myself in my profession. I am better able to gauge what I do well and what I can work on professionally, after listening to this book. I will probably listen a second time to it in a few months to see if I pick up anything else important. If you are a therapist, social worker, social service professional then this book can probably help you better understand yourself and the field you work in. I also think this book would be helpful to students considering this field of work.
More than just a school book...
