This book inspires people to make a difference in their work with others. While all too often our society is fascinated by evil, rather than goodness, Doing Good celebrates the passion, exhilaration, and excitement that accompany acts of service, while also recognizing that some sacrifices are made along the way. Told through the experiences of those who "do good" for a living or as an avocation, this book reflects the realities of helping others through those who are successful and flourishing in their work. Unlike more traditional texts that concentrate exclusively on research, theory, or techniques, this work is focused on helping beginners to feel good about their commitment to service and to understand the motivation of those who have dedicated themselves to it.

Newly revised and updated, this indispensable guide includes more case examples and adds seven ways "to fail" with child patients, too. How to Fail... details how to avoid errors such as not recognizing limitations, performing incomplete assessments, ignoring science, ruining the client relationship, setting improper boundaries, terminating improperly, therapist burnout, and more.
