Barnett, Psy.D., ABPP, is a Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Psychology at Loyola University Maryland as well as a licensed psychologist in independent practice. He is Board Certified in Clinical Psychology and in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology and he is a Distinguished Practitioner in the National Academies of Practice.


Perhaps the most exciting book to date in the self-care field! So many of us can only wish we'd had such a guide as students. What a significant, state-of-the-art contribution to the field! The reality is that self-care is an ongoing lifespan practice, for each of us, as we evolve, personally and professionally. To have this information from which to build on across the course of one's life-what a priceless gift! * Ellen K. Baker, PhD, Author of Caring for Ourselves: A Therapist's Guide to Personal and Professional Well-Being *
The authors take a compassionate look at the stresses associated with graduate study in psychology and argue convincingly for the importance of effective self-care. I strongly encourage current and perspective graduate students (and the faculty members who mentor them) to purchase and use this book. * Erica H. Wise, PhD, Clinical Professor and Director of the Psychology Clinic, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill *
Beginning graduate school and entering a profession can be surprisingly stressful, especially for those who have been so successful in the past. Carter and Barnett place this very intimate journey in perspective, highlighting the importance of mentors, self-help activities, and a healthy lifestyle. This book meets a very important need for graduate students in the 'helping professions' and should be required reading in every graduate program. * Pat DeLeon, PhD, former President of the American Psychological Association *
Self-Care for Clinicians in Training is a wonderful book that fills a major need. As the authors note, far too few training programs attend to self-care issues as part of clinical training, even as self-care is now identified as an ethical imperative for all psychotherapists. This workbook can be the trainee's companion across the entire graduate program and into the internship. It offers many self-assessment worksheets and a wealth of suggested strategies across many life domains. Well done! * Christine A. Courtois, PhD, ABPP, Psychologist, Private Practice, Washington, DC, and co-author, The Treatment of Complex Trauma, author, Healing the Incest Wound, and co-editor, Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders *
