Compassion Fatigue: Caring for the Caregiver (Loren Gelberg-Goff)

BTRadioIntThis program, taken from our archives, addresses a concern among all types of caregivers. Dr. Sutton, host of The Changing Behavior Network, interviews Loren Gelberg-Goff on this very important topic of compassion fatigue.

………………………

A Good Quality, But …

Compassion is a good quality for any person to have. But too much compassion for too long can cause one to become dejected and weary. It can even make folks sick as it takes a toll on persons of high purpose and intent.

Compassion Fatigue

Loren Gelberg-Goff, Compassion FatigueWhen a person is a caregiver of others, either as a family member or as a profession, there will always be a risk for compassion fatigue. It’s a condition affecting good people, and, when children and grandchildren are in the home, how we deal with it is on display. How do we recognize the symptoms of compassion fatigue, and how is it managed and treated, or, if possible, avoided? Our guest on this program, author and psychotherapist Loren Gelberg-Goff, will help us with answers to these very important questions and concerns.

Resilience: A path Through Difficult Times (Guest: Kristen Brown)

BTRadioInt-300x75This is a repost of a great interview with Kristen done April 29, 2012.

Life can be difficult, sometimes VERY difficult. How we manage those trying times and circumstances matters.

Resilience, the coming back from deep sadness, tremendous stress and heartbreak, is never a level path connecting loss to recovery. It has many twists, turns, hills and valleys, with struggle, frustration and doubt as part of the journey.

Kristen Brown gives us a good look at what resilience is all about. She and her husband, Todd, were 30. They had it all, a nice home, a secure job and Brooke, their beautiful baby girl. Then, with no warning at all, Todd, an athlete in high school, dies suddenly of a heart attack. For her sake and Brooke’s, Kristen resolved to not only survive and recover, but to thrive in the face of adversity.

This is Kristen’s story, including how she started and operates several successful ventures, wrote a best-selling book, The Best Worst Thing; a Memoir, and continues to reach out with support and encouragement to others who also must travel a path they didn’t choose. (27:04)

Pull the Plug on Failure (Guest: Dr. James Sutton)

jimrecordingHere’s a program from the archives. Back in March of 1991, Dr. James Sutton (that’s him in a photo taken at the time) and educational resources company, Rock ‘N Learn, collaborated on an audio project, Shutting Down the Failure Machine. This all came about when Dr. Sutton met school psychologist Richard Caudle on a speaking trip to east Texas.

RNLLogoRichard and his brother, Brad Caudle, a talented audio engineer and gifted musician, founded Rock ‘N Learn to create effective learning programs that are of high interest to young people. More than two decades later, Rock ‘N Learn is doing well, indeed, having earned over 150 awards!

This program was recorded at the Rock ‘N Learn studios in Houston, Texas (Conroe, for folks who know the area). It showcases Brad’s ear and feel for what sounds “right”.

RNLABOUT THIS PROGRAM

Pull the Plug on Failure was edited from a longer original program. In this program, Dr. Sutton describes the three stages of failure for the troubled child: Stress, Struggle and Submission. He offers many actual examples from his vast experience in the assessment of young people. He then goes on to provide ten ways we can encourage, assist and lift up the child or teen plagued by difficulty and failure. (24:11)
