8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Joe Niemczura on December 9, 2010
Format: Hardcover
In my experience as a critical car enurse and also as a hospital manager and teacher of nursing, I have dealth with issues of secondary stress for many years and I have seen many victims of this problem. And so, I stay abreast of this issue.

On Page 5 of the book, the author says:

"it's a 'one-sitting book' designed to distill current clinical papers and reaearch; provide proper guidelines to avoid and/or limit unnecessary distress; strengthen the inner life of physicians, nurses and allied health personnel; and offer recommendations for further reading on the topic. If nothing else, its goal is to raise awareness that secondary stress is a danger.."

and I think this nifty little tome fills every one of these these goals and more. In a survey book, Dr. Wicks has managed to distill the best suggestions, on a very practical level, into something that's readable and deceptively simple. I say deceptive, because he has a way of describing the profound thoughts of stress, death, burnout, and spirituality into an engaging style.

It is readable and has many anecdotes to which a clinician will relate. He makes excellent use of summarized bullet points, and checklist style formats to present ideas. I found myself thinking of all the people who need this as a christmas present.

in short: highly recommended!

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Fr. Jim - Hospital Chaplain on January 14, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Robert Wicks' suggestions regarding strategies for avoiding or relieving secondary stress are very useful for all medical professionals. As a hospital chaplain I can attest to the fact that such stress is ever present in hospitals. Having suggestions on how to avoid or aleviate it has proven valuable, especially is spiritual areas.
