Today we have a clip from a recent presentation at the DSN Scottsdale facility. This presentation was given by one of our DSI Blackbelts, Dr. Bryan Stimmler. Bryan runs a successful practice in Brooklyn, and has found that compassion and empathy have helped facilitate that success. On the show today, Bryan talks about empathy and compassion fatigue- what it is, why it happens, and how to prevent it.

During the presentation, he discusses:

  • How compassion fatigue is different from burnout
  • Having a finite amount of empathy
  • How to prepare for compassion fatigue
  • Ways for you and your team members to avoid compassion fatigue
