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.
