What You Never Learned in Graduate School
A Survival Guide for Therapists
This provocative book examines the realities of clinical practice for which therapists are unprepared.
Therapists are struggling to adapt both to their profession's changing landscape (such as the advent of managed care and the burgeoning of new theories and treatment approaches) and to demands on their professional and personal success. This book explores many issues that are rarely addressed in formal educational experiences for example, organizational politics, the negative "side effects" of being a therapist, keeping up with cutting-edge innovations, sustaining a private practice, and planning for the future and offers concrete suggestions for adapting to the world outside graduate school. Personal, easygoing writing style, the hallmark of Kottler's previous bestselling books, makes this an engaging and provocative read.
