January 3, 2018

What were counselors reading in 2017?

The year’s most-read post at Counseling Today online was a first-person article that shared insights on recovering from — and avoiding — practitioner burnout. Readers were also interested in pieces that shared professional insights on social issues, strengthening the therapeutic relationship, client issues such as trauma and anxiety, navigating technology, counselor licensure and other topics.

Interestingly, the top five search terms that brought online searchers to the Counseling Today website were “countertransference,” “self-care for counselors,” “multicultural competence,” “empathy fatigue” and “dual relationships in counseling.”

More than 150 articles, both online-exclusive pieces and articles that also appeared in Counseling Today’s print magazine, were posted at ct.counseling.org in 2017.
