The things they say

Omg. Of course it’s obvious. If you feel rubbish after seeing the patient then that’s generally how much less they feel rubbish. The patient has just transferred that all over to you. Means you have done a good job. That’s what Balint groups are for.!!!!! Listening and validating are incrediably important and therapeutic gifts you can give to a patient. More then ever there are less other places to get this ( church/ family/ social worker).
