Description

Stress is ubiquitous these days. And it can take a heavy toll unless it is recognized and managed effectively and insightfully. Though compassion fatigue is an oft-used phrase, how accurate is it? Does one truly become fatigued by feeling, expressing, or manifesting compassion? This recording will explore the deeper source of the well-known phenomenon of burnout, when people engaged in caring for others experience a depletion of their energies, a psychic and physical lassitude. Practices will be taught to prevent what is known as compassion fatigue, and to restore our energies if we have been affected by it. Dr. Maté’s presentation includes research findings, compelling and poignant anecdotes from his own extensive experience in family practice and palliative care.
