“Whose Stuff is This?” – interview with Caron Goode

Today Spiritus is hosting another stop of the Book Tour for “Whose Stuff is This” by Yvonne Perry.

I have a fascinating interview for you with Dr Caron Goode, who wrote the Foreward to the book – we talked of how that came about on March 12th.

I asked her whether most doctors and therapists recognize the symptoms of Compassion Fatigue, what they might give as a diognosis and what treatments they might suggest. I think you will find the answers very revealing and that you will realise the importance of Yvonne’s book.

Get Yvonne’s new book on March 28th on Amazon . It is also available for Kindle Reader .

To receive updates see the tour schedule.

    What is a Compassion Fatigue? Guess I should be listening to the audio and check their books. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Sweepstaker,

    Compassion fatigue or empathy fatigue is when an empathic caretaker, therapist, nanny, friend, parent, nurse, doctor, counselor, coach etc feels the emotions of the one being counseled or cared for. To do the work supporters do requires an open hearted positioning, and over time, wears on the feeling and emotions of the supporter. Those who keep their professional distance and still have the natural talent of empathy can still feel the emotional weight of others over time.
