Stress that affects us professionally—it's an issue as sensitive as it is serious; the impact on clients can be great. How does one recognize the distressed professional? What causes distress? How can family and friends help? How should a colleague confront him or her? Support him or her? What about prevention? Organized into three sections, "Issues," Syndromes," and "Solutions," Professionals in Distress defines the problems, discusses the major dysfunctional syndromes that professionals experience, and provides specific advice for colleagues, families, and interested others about what can be done to assist the distressed.
