A psychologist's stories of doctors who seek to help others but struggle to help themselves
From ER and M*A*S*H to Grey's Anatomy and House , the medical drama endures for good reason: we're fascinated by the people we must trust when we are most vulnerable. In Also Human , vocational psychologist Caroline Elton introduces us to some of the distressed physicians who have come to her for help: doctors who face psychological challenges that threaten to destroy their careers and lives, including an obstetrician grappling with his own homosexuality, a high-achieving junior doctor who walks out of her first job within weeks of starting, and an oncology resident who faints when confronted with cancer patients. Entering a doctor's office can be terrifying, sometimes for the doctor most of all. By examining the inner lives of these professionals, Also Human offers readers insight into, and empathy for, the very real struggles of those who hold power over life and death.
