Healthy Empathy: How to Give Without Giving It All Away

Aug 17 - 19, 2018 Begins this weekend
with Karla McLaren & Tino Plank

Multiple studies confirm that health and healing professionals who demonstrate empathy provide better care and achieve greater patient/client satisfaction. However, empathic burnout and compassion fatigue are a constant presence in the working lives of health professionals and anyone who provides caregiving. In addition to the many other challenges, they must make sure that their empathy is intentional, self-enriching, sustainable, and most of all, healthy.
