In this episode, I will address -
Compassionate or calloused. Finding emotional balance and the ability to be compassionately Indifferent is key to success.
A Recent conversation in a group of professionals on who to deal with stressful clients.
Lots of varied and effective strategies. Then...
“I choose not to care and I work out.”
In this episode, I am going to address the balance between being too compassionate and putting up walls that leave you cold and calloused.
A successful practice is built on the balance of caring just enough not to care too much and practice values that say We C.A.R.E. I will explain that in depth.
I will also give you a very simple question to use to self-evaluate and keep the emotional entanglement in check.
I’ll finish off by exploring the 3 reasons that it is financially vital to find emotional balance.
The delicate dance between over caring, and not caring at all. Let’s start with discussing the why. Why is it so important to develop the ability to be compassionately indifferent?
Private Practice Professions - Dentists and Therapists, in particular, are at high risk for emotional overwhelm and mental distress. Dentist work with patients who are in pain, are afraid, and generally, do not want to be there, AND if your work is off at all, the bite will be off and the patient will be even more unhappy. The stress is insane. Therapists sit all day in dark rooms listening to the dark secrets and hidden pains of their clients.
Finding a path to empathetically block without being sterile and cold is the key to patient happiness and self-preservation.
