The Importance of Knowledge, Faith & Understanding Burnout with Dr. Sam Kim
Dr. Sam D. Kim is a pastor, author, and ethicist who is offering insight and care into some of the most essential gaps in the mental health conversation.
When working in a prestigious position as research fellow in Global Health and Social Medicine at the Center for Bioethics at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kim began noticing the deep burn-out impacting many healthcare workers. He found that these highly-educated, socially celebrated individuals were often experiencing intense emotional lows. The result was a lot of work digging into the mechanics of burnout — and how to repair it.
Dr. Kim’s work is born of a deep personal faith that developed through experiencing God’s compassionate healing hand after his own trauma in the process of his family’s relocation to America from Korea. That faith is explored in depth through A Holy Haunting: Why Faith Isn’t a Leap but a Series of Staggers from One Safe Place to Another. This episode digs into the book’s intriguing title while continuing the Trevor Talks mission of shedding light on the hardest mental health conversations.
