Companioning You! A Soulful Guide to Caring for Yourself While You Care for the Dying and the Bereaved


Based on Dr. Wolfelt’s unique and highly regarded philosophy of “companioning” versus treating mourners, this self-care guide for professional and lay caregivers emphasizes the importance of taking good care of yourself as a precursor to taking good care of others.


Bereavement care is draining work, and remaining empathetic to the painful struggles of the mourners and dying they serve makes caregivers highly susceptible to burnout. But if you make compassionate self-care a priority, not only will your life be richer and more joyful, you will be a more effective caregiver to others. Let this book show you how to have balance in your life and in your work.
