On episode 344 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Edward Smink regarding the revised edition of his seminal book, “The Soul of Caregiving“, and its focus on the cultural taboos that prevent caregivers from seeking self-care, and an essential task of our time in the face of existential crises like the Covid-19 pandemic: overcoming compassion fatigue.
Doctor Smink holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in Mythological Studies and Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. His dissertation was titled, “Thresholds of Affliction: The Heroic Journey of Illness,” and his thesis was titled, “Rooted Flight: The Transformative Value of the Caregiver in the Dying Process.” To purchase copies of “Soul of Caregiving”, visit Dr. Smink’s online store.
