From the Other Side of the Couch: Candid Conversations with Psychiatrists and Psychologists

By Chris E. Stout | Go to book overview

Chapter Six
The Personal
It is difficult to maintain an objective perspective when working on a project such as this. I must comment that this chapter is my favorite. I like the very direct insight it provides in examining professionals' inner thoughts, their own past experiences, opinions and world view. We uncover how they deal with stress and burnout, what they hold secret, and we are provided vignettes on the rarely talked about questions of, What drew you into the field? and the therapists' own experiences of being in therapy.Only in the first section of responses are the subjects classified by either psychology or psychiatry. The reason for this was indicated by the fact that training is varied between the two professional groups and this may add clarity for readers (especially those who are students). Conversely, the other questions seemed to elicit more basic responses generic to human beings, not specific disciplines of professionals. Thus, the data are grouped solely by question-answer, without subcategorization.
INTERVIEW QUESNONS
What drew you into the field?
Have you ever been in psychotherapy? Why? Why not? What were your experiences? How did you select a therapist? What was the outcome?
What are your deepest secrets?
What types of stress do you encounter? How stressed are you? How do you cope with burn out? What do you do for fun/relaxation/recreation? How do you spend your free time?
