#17: Feeling Feelings

In this episode, we talk about processing feelings, something that many doctors tend to avoid. It makes sense when you consider our training. The problem is that not being proficient at allowing emotions can lead to negative consequences.

Four options when a feeling arises:

  1. Resist
  2. React
  3. Distract
  4. Allow

In order to process an emotion:

  1. Notice it - notice the physician manifestations
  2. Name it - can start with mad, sad, glad, afraid, ashamed/disgust if having a hard time
  3. Allow it
  4. Decide what to do now - change what you can, accept what you can't, and/or decide to leave
