Good Luck on your National Registry!!!Im doing EMT basic school in San Francisco doing the national registry in December. I'm currently volunteering with San Francisco Fire Department EMS division to get hands on and practical tests done with.I like public safety and emergency medicine
The way I was taught how to determine the difference is that someone who is empathetic can understand where the patient is coming from and recognizes the emotions and reactions and is able to give appropriate help/responses to a patient or patient's family. Someone who is using sympathy instead will feel those same emotions and reactions as though they were experiencing everything themselves. This can often overwhelm a health care provide and make it so they are unable to give appropriate help or responses to a given situation.Can you elaborate on this, please?
Quoted and emphasized because this can't be said enough.I work as an addictions counsellor in a residential treatment centre. Frustrating job at times, but very rewarding. The one downside of INFPs working in helping fields is that we do care, which is also why we are in the field. It is easy to take your work home and think about the people you are helping when you are at home. We really need to establish boundaries and take very good care of ourselves. Self care is EXTREMELY important.
