Resources for Clinicians' Self-Care:
Enhancing Well-Being & Avoiding Burnout
NOTE: I created this site to be fully accessible for people with disabilities; please follow this link to change text size, color, or contrast; please follow this link for other accessibility functions for those with visual, mobility, and other disabilities.
I gathered together the following information to help clinicians keep abreast of the latest books and peer-reviewed articles on clinicians' self-care, enhancing well-being, and avoiding burnout.
The ethics book by Melba Vasquez, Ph.D., ABPP, and me includes a chapter emphasizing the ethic of self-care. The chapter recommends "creating strategies for self-care as early as possible in your education, training, and practice. Neglecting self-care early on can drain the enthusiasm, joy, resilience, and meaning out of a career. It can hurt our ability to practice ethically. It can sink us in discouragement, compassion fatigue, and burnout."
The chapter discusses each of the possible consequences of neglecting self-care, including:
- Disrespecting clients
- Disrespecting work
- Making more mistakes
- Lacking energy
- Becoming anxious and afraid
- Using work to block out unhappiness, pain, & discontent
- Losing interest
It also discusses strategies for addressing common problem areas, including:
- The Sedentary Life
- The Dispirited Life
- The Unsupported Life
- Neglected Health
- The Stressed or Distressed Life
- The Need for Change
So crucial is the ethic of self-care that it is worth keeping up with the rapidly evolving theory, research, and practice in this area.
This web page presents recent (i.e., published in 2011-2013) cites for books and peer-reviewed journal articles addressing clinician self-care, well-being, and burnout. The titles include, for example:
- "Self-Care Practices & Perceived Stress Levels Among Psychology Graduate Students"
- The Resilient Practitioner: Burnout Prevention & Self-Care Strategies for Counselors, Therapists, Teachers, & Health Professionals (2nd ed.)
- "Integrating Mindfulness as Self-Care Into Counselling & Psychotherapy Training"
- "Antecedents & Consequences of Three Dimensions of Burnout in Psychotherapists: a Meta-Analysis"
- "The Things We're Taking Home With Us: Understanding Thearpist's Self-Care in Trauma Work"
- "The AGPA Institute as a Boost to Therapist Resilience in a Post-9/11 World"
- "Self-Care in Palliative Care: a Way of Being"
- "Wellness in Counselor Preparation: Promoting Individual Well-Being"
Because the literature on self-care, well-being, and burnout is so vast, the lists below are limited to books and articles focusing specifically on clinicians' self-care, well-being, or burnout.
