Therapists and other helping professionals work in highly demanding fields and can suffer from burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary stress. The third edition of The Resilient Practitioner guides students and practitioners toward their own personal balance between caring for themselves and caring for others. This new edition includes a new chapter on models of resiliency, an updated self-care action plan, self-reflection exercises in each chapter, and other valuable additions, but readers will find that the new edition retains its strong grounding, focus on research, and accessible writing style. They’ll also find that the new edition continues its focus on establishing working alliances and charting a hopeful path for practitioners, one that allows them to work intensely with human suffering and have a vibrant career in the process.

Michelle Trotter-Mathison, PhD, is a psychologist at the University of Minnesota’s Boynton Health Services and also maintains a private practice in St. Paul, Minnesota.
