Caroline Elton, 61, the author of "Also Human: The Inner Lives of Doctors," is a London-based psychologist with an unusual practice. Her patients are physicians unhappy in their work.
We spoke for two hours on a recent afternoon in New York City. An edited and condensed version our conversation follows.
You titled your book "Also Human." Why?
My editor wanted to call it "Only Human." I was adamant that it should be "Also Human." I had written a book about the shared humanity of doctors and patients. Both are human!
