There is a widespread belief among operators of care that if they turn a deaf ear to their emotions they manage to be more professional and efficient. In particular, the excessive use of technical specialisms has led to a concealment of feelings, making the caring professions lose part of their humanity. In fact, emotions and feelings are the root of what unites healthY and sick people, and the use of this technique doesn’t protect from the emotional implications, but it expands the sphere of action thus widening that of decision-making and responsibility.
