Breaking the taboo: eight Swedish clinical psychologists' experiences of compassion fatigue.
CONCLUSIONS: It was found that all of the participants had experienced negative impact of compassion fatigue on their personal lives. A large quantity of patients, and complex patient cases, as well as high expectations on the psychologists were experienced as contributing factors. Collegial support, an empathetic boss, a high degree of agency at work, and fulfiling activities outside of work were experienced as protecting against compassion fatigue.

Participant experiences of change in mindfulness-based stress reduction for anxiety disorders.
CONCLUSION: Participants of MBSR both describe mindfulness as a tool to "fix" anxiety and as bringing about more fundamental change towards acceptance of their anxiety. The complexity of reported change corresponds with better handling of areas representing known transdiagnostic features of anxiety disorder, such as dysfunctional cognitive processes (including attentional biases), emotional dysregulation, avoidance behaviours, and maladaptive self-relatedness. This supports MBSR as a transdiagnostic approach to the treatment of anxiety disorders. PMID: 32543979 [PubMed - in process] (Source: International Jou...

Conclusions: Assert was perceived by the counsellors as enhancing collaboration and conveying to the adolescents that the counsellors took their concerns seriously. It also provided structure by giving the sessions a concrete focus.

Assert was generally considered a useful and simple way to assess adolescents' concerns, and it was accepted by the counsellors as a positive contribution to their existing methods. PMID: 324...

Conclusions: Singing and music can be powerful and useful tools in the care of and in communication with persons with dementia.
