Outpatient Appointment Paperwork
If you or a loved one need care from Gundersen Behavioral Health, you will be presented with paperwork that satisfies our legal and regulatory requirements. The paperwork includes:
Do you find yourself or a loved feel out of sorts and question what you are doing with your life? Asking these questions is normal and can be an opportunity for self-evaluation. Are you living consistent with your values? This exercise can help you look at your values and reflect on the consistency between your values and your behaviors.
If you care for others, it can be more of a calling than vocation. Presence, patience and empathy are the ground upon which the caregiver stands but it can be risky if you’re not caring for yourself. Compassion fatigue is a very real, painful reality for many caregivers but is treatable.
The recording Compassion Fatigue: The Therapeutic Paradox by Mark L. Taylor, MA, LPC, Gundersen Behavioral Health therapist, uses mindfulness psychology to provide a good first step in addressing compassion fatigue.
