The Thriving Giver
7 Principles for health professionals and caregivers to enhance self-care and prevent burnout
“Health care professionals and those who take care of others should read this outstanding book!” - Dr. Richard Gillett, psychiatrist and bestselling author of It's a Freakin' Mess
“I cannot recommend this book highly enough.” – Dr. Sarah Eagger, consultant psychiatrist and co-author of Stillness in the Storm
How to balance your own self-care with the needs of others
As a helping professional, caregiver, or someone who puts others first, it is so easy to ignore your own needs. Becoming physically run-down, emotionally burned-out, and spiritually depleted can result in frustration and anxiety - even disillusionment.
Sarah Kuipers knows this all too well. She ran a successful health practice for over 20 years. The combined pressure of work and bringing up three boys as a single parent finally led to debilitating burnout.
Sarah was curious about why so many people, including health professionals, fail to manage stress and practice self-care. She completed a Masters in Research on stress and burnout, and now teaches stress management to medical students.
