Julie Squires spent some time talking with me about the significant role that compassion fatigue plays in many of our lives. As she says, it's not only the patient trauma that we deal with every day, we also have to consider the compassion we extend to clients and team members. I hope you gain as much from her insights as I have in this episode!
