Recognizing and Responding to Chronic Sorrow: Revitalizing the Weary Hearts of Veteran Caregivers
Do you sometimes feel alone, undervalued, or misunderstood as a caregiver of a Veteran? Nobody ever said it would be easy to care for a disabled Veteran, but nobody ever said it could be quite so hard either. Caregivers often experience chronic sorrow by facing significant losses that have no foreseeable end. American culture does not value sorrow so, understandably, we often disconnect from its pain. By disconnecting from the part of self carrying the pain, we unwittingly contribute to the loss of energy, emptiness, and compassion fatigue that disconnection causes. Connecting with the part of self generating the pain, paradoxically, restores wholeness.
Join the co-founders of Opus Peace, Pat McGuire and Deborah Grassman (author of Peace at Last: Stories of Hope and Healing for Veterans and Their Families) for a perspective that is sure to expand your knowledge and skill in revitalizing the weary caregivers’ heart that is wary of any further changes in their ever-demanding life.
