Home….for traumatized and burned out physicians

You’ve started to believe it’s your fault. Reality check…it isn’t! The traumatization of physicians often begins with training and continues in the workplace. Every aspect of your life is effected! Your sense of self becomes distorted. You aren’t sure who you even are anymore and whether you can trust yourself. Life at home is stressful and complicated. You feel like you are never enough, no matter how much you try. All your peers seem to be doing just fine. You’ve come to believe that you are less smart, less resilient, less valuable than others around you. You are in trouble and you don’t know where to get help.
