Overcoming secondary stress in medical and nursing practice : a guide to professional resilience and personal well-being by Robert J Wicks( )

"Physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals working in today's health care settings must be prepared to offer support in dangerous times despite staffing shortages, financial pressures, and complex legal requirements.

The resilient clinician by Robert J Wicks( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychologist Robert Wicks addresses the experience of the mental health professional and raises awareness of the insidious, almost silent psychological defenses of denial and avoidance in the life of the clinician. A guide to preventing and limiting acute and chronic secondary stress, The Resilient Clinician offers an overview of mindfulness and meditation as they apply to the clinician's own life rather than of the client or patient, and describes how to develop a personally designed self-care protocol. This book also includes selective bibliographies of relevant research and clinical and theoretical publications in the subject area, from common stressors and vicarious post-traumatic stress disorders to burnout and compassion fatigue. Informed by positive psychology and infused with compassion and wisdom, this book will help clinicians remained challenged, maintain perspective, and be inspired both professionally and personally."--BOOK JACKET

The inner life of the counselor by Robert J Wicks( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"--

This is a comprehensive, practical, and readable work that should be at hand for any mental health clinician, pastoral care professional, or student preparing for these professions."--J.

Night call : embracing compassion and hope in a troubled world by Robert J Wicks( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caring for our family members, friends, and others is a central part of a rewarding life. For those in healing and helping professions such as medicine, nursing, education, psychotherapy, social work, ministry, and the military, the potential for a meaningful way of being may even become more possible. But, compassion is not easy. At times, concern for others can be personally devastating when we don't possess the right attitude and approach. Reaching out (and reflectively within) without being pulled down requires the wisdom that only arises out of the right combination of humility and knowledge. Night Call offers the stories and principles gleaned over many years of writing and mentoring for those in the helping and healing professions. The stories are offered in ways that foster compassionate caring while encouraging initiative in those who seek to personally deepen and share their lives with others -- especially in times of significant need. With this in mind, Dr. Wicks presents information on: · being a healing presence · mining fruits of the failures all of us must experience at times · the need to enjoy the daily "crumbs of alonetime" · the importance of a spirit of "unlearning" · developing a simple realistic self-care program · valuing informal or formal mentoring · recognizing the "3 calls" to which we must respond to as we psychologically develop · honoring life's most elusive psychological virtue (humility) Purposely brief, the chapters, as well as the sections in the "personal resiliency retreat" section at the end of the book, have as their goal a reconsideration of values, signature strengths, and simple approaches to living a resilient, rewarding life. Rather than presenting new breakthroughs, Night Call is designed to dust off what most of us already know, at some level, so we can freshly view the key approaches and techniques that provide increased psychological self-awareness and a potentially healthier sense of presence to others. The themes offered may have been forgotten, or become undervalued/set aside because of some of society's dysfunctional norms or unhelpful family influences. In response, this simple, countercultural book combines the value of essential self-compassion with caring for others in ways that provide the impetus for further exploration of a fuller narrative for both the readers of this work and unforeseen opportunities as well for those who are fortunate enough to cross their paths"--Google Books
