Struggles of the Novice Counselor and Therapists.
Skovholt, Thomas M.; Ronnestad, Michael H.
Journal of Career Development, v30 n1 p45-58 Fall 2003
Review of theory and research on counselor/therapist development identified seven stressors of novice practitioners, catalyzed by the ambiguity of professional work. Sources of stress include acute performance anxiety, scrutiny of professional gatekeepers, porous or rigid emotional boundaries, fragile and incomplete practitioner identity, inadequate concept maps, glamorized expectations, and acute need for positive mentors.
