Compassion For You - Compassion Fatigue information and support
My Blog

Favourite author...

I have not done very much reading in the past couple months.  Before the drama of the evacuation I had two or three books started.  The books I usually read are about trauma, the helping profession, human behaviour and self care. 
Thanks to Françoise Mathieu of WHP (Workshops for the Helping Profession) in Kingston, I found Dr. Gabor Maté and his books.  I also had the privilege of seeing him do a presentation at the Compassion Fatigue Conference in Kingston in June and he sat at our table at lunch.
When I started reading his books, I was so inspired by his message and his perspective, I sent him an email.  He wrote me a personal message saying thank you and recommending other books for me.  This personal attention to sharing the message of compassion for others and ourselves is so inspiring, I just want to share with everyone what others have shared with me. 
The following are my favourite books by Dr. Maté.  I have read them both twice.
Scattered Minds -  information and a new (to me) perspective about Attention Deficit Disorder
When the Body Says No - a new (to me) perspective about the link between our personal history and our current health

Self-care can be a lot of things. There are certainly a lot of self-care activities that I could suggest but the main genuine approach to recognize what you require is to tune in to your body and act accordingly.

I always suggest new people think outside of the box when they join this business. In this business, you need to think differently from others if you want to get success.

The author Mark Manson asks you 10 questions, and if you answered yes to more than half of them, then you are an emotional vampire. He does not condemn you for being an emotional vampire, rather, he explains that it is an effect of being hurt in the past
