Psychologist who practice in small or contained communities share special circumstances that both complicate and enhance their professional lives. Such settings include rural, military, law enforcement, or faith-based environments; communities of color; gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender clients; and students at small colleges. In these closeknit groups, psychologists' professionals and personal lives often overlap with those of their clients. This book explores how the life of a small-community psychologist differs from that of a colleague in larger areas, and provides reassuring guidance on common problems and concerns.
