The importance of gently and skilfully relating with an individual’s inner world is not only an invaluable skill for doctors in their work, it is of equal importance that doctors also receive this care should an upsetting or violent event take place.

When our integrity or competence is called into question, even by someone we do not know or care for, we take it seriously, and we feel it personally.

Being aware of change allows doctors to better balance their lives. Change may occur within our bodies, our family or friends, or at work
