Helping Medical Students better manage compassion fatigue
I am taking Medical students at present. They can often feel emotionally drained after sitting in a series of counseling sessions.
Learning to defuse and hold space for difficult feelings with hope, possibilities, optimism and compassion is a skill that they will need to foster over time.
Otherwise it can be very hard to sustain.
Maybe we can to do more for these future Doctors at the Medical School level perhaps.
