Feelings that are frozen can create many different problems: emotional and physical. Learn to unfreeze, process and integrate the message of your feelings.

 

"Highly sensitive people and severely abused people need to be aware that they can accept and take charge of their healing process by finding therapeutic practices and groups that will let them forgive and let go of the past. Engaging in such practices helps minimize the potential for long term destructive addiction and therefore is valuable for all people."

Patient Experience: A Key Differentiator

Patient experience has emerged as a dynamic issue for healthcare CEOs, physicians, nursing executives and industry leaders. No provider can afford to offer anything less than the best clinical, physical and emotional experience to patients and families. As patients become savvier, they judge healthcare providers not only on clinical outcomes, but also on their ability to be compassionate and deliver excellent, patient-centered care.
