Join us as we walk through presenters unique experiences with suffering, articulate the meaning of suffering, and explore why we as caregivers are so afraid of it! Learn how you can honor your own sufferings, and leverage them for GOOD- connecting with your patients inside of it. We will also provide some practical tools to help you accomplish this.
