Radio Show with Dr Goode & Shelagh Jones
Why do doctors and therapists prescribe drugs for a condition they do not recognize as empathy fatigue?
Dr. Goode gives the perfect description of how an empathic person such as a healer or counselor picks up the energy of the clients they care for. Your body and mind can tell you when the session has gone on long enough and needs to end. An empath must care for her own self when trying to help others.
Learn what Dr. Goode says when asked by host Shelagh Jones @SpiritusShelagh if most doctors and therapists recognize the symptoms of compassion fatigue and what diagnosis they might give and what treatments they might suggest. I think you will find the answers very revealing in this fascinating interview with Caron, who wrote the foreword to the book, Whose Stuff Is This?
