Still Practicing: The Heartaches and Joys of a Clinical Career. By Sandra Buechler. New York: Routledge, 2012, 230 pp.

Review by:
Tracy D. Morgan, LCSW, MPHIL, CGP

In the photo on the cover of Sandra Buechler's book, Still Practicing: The Heartaches and Joys of a Clinical Career, two rocks are situated on what looks like a steep ravine. Seemingly against all odds, the stones are balanced, albeit precariously, one atop the other. Perhaps this image is meant to capture the seemingly impossible balancing act that is part and parcel of the clinical career, as Buechler sees it. Very much so in the tradition of Nina Coltart's How to Survive as a Psychotherapist and Sheldon Bach's The How to Book for Students of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, this author takes the reader's hand, elaborating on what she deems the average and expectable hardships, alongside the all too often unacknowledged emotional travails, of a life spent listening with the third ear.

This is very much a book that will give those who run institutions of psychoanalytic learning cause to pause.
