Self-Care for the Caregiver in the COVID Era with Dimitrios Tsatiris, MD

Physicians dedicate our lives to the care of others and this often doesn’t end when we leave work, but extends to our family and friends, other projects and demands that lead us to over extend ourselves until we feel like butter spread over too much bread. This has become acutely true during this pandemic, so psychiatrist Dr. Dimitrios Tsatiris discusses how we can work more self-care into our lives without the guilt. We start by defining self-care, what can happen to us if we forgo it for too long. We then go into all of the internal and external obstacles we face to self-care and he gives ideas for overcoming those obstacles.

Dimitrios Tsatiris, MD, is a Board-Certified Psychiatrist in Cleveland, Ohio, who specializes in the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders. He completed his residency training at University Hospitals Case Medical Center where he served as Chief Resident. He is also certified in psychodynamic psychotherapy from the Cleveland Psychoanalytic Center.

When he is not at work, he devotes his time to his wife and 2 young children.
