Happy Professionals

At first I was worried this wouldn’t be useful since I work about 45-55 hours a week and hardly have time to learn more. But I have to say I love this. I got some time to myself after I put my kids to bed and found this to be great.  I’m looking forward to your new summaries and know I’ll be able to utilize this as a social worker! Lisa W.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Just wanted to share my thanks for the recent summary on childhood trauma. It was extremely useful in giving me insight. I liked the material enough that I actually ended up buying the original book that was summarized. I don’t know if I would have discovered the author you mentioned without your resource. John E.

Serious About Your Career? Here’s How to Save Huge!

1. Report this educational expense as a tax deduction to save on your income taxes. 

Consult with your accountant. If you live in the US, then read what the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) says: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/tax-benefits-for-education-information-center

According to the IRS, “If your education isn’t required by your employer or the law, it can be qualifying work-related education only if it maintains or improves skills needed in your present work.”

2. Ask the mental health company you work for to reimburse you.

Chances are they want better mental health practitioners and already have educational benefits.

It never hurts to ask.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Writes These Summaries?
Written by mental health professionals for mental health professionals. 🙂
What About Copyrights And Original Authors?
We take consideration in making the language we use original and unique. We are not writing in competition with or supplanting demand for the original works. Thus, every summary has a link to obtain the original book at the end. We always recommend the original works as they offer more in-depth examples, explanations, and references. Our goal is to give you a snapshot in our own interpretations and never the entirety of the book. We do not claim any sponsorship by the original authors.

We hope that by giving mental health professionals an easy way to discover new psychological approaches, theories, and ideas, Psych Nest will bring authors more readers and help get more great books noticed and read.

If you’re an author and would like to receive additional exposure by having us summarize your book, then please email us: support@psychnest.org
