Product description


I very much enjoyed reading this book. It soon became apparent to me that it is built on a wealth of experience and expertise and offers some important insights. Promoting well-being, whether specifically workplace well-being or social well-being more broadly, involves helping people. The authors of this clearly written and well-crafted book are very alert to this and offer the reader some important lessons in how to be a 'helper'. An important text that should be read by anyone involved in helping, whether as a member of the helping professions (social work,nuring,counselling and so on) or, as a manager, supervisor, leader or human resource professional in any setting. Author: Well-Being

The authors are clear that to be a helper requires us to be able to occupy equally the position of one who is helped and to commit to developing that capacity to help... the authors recognise that those who help are on a lifelong journey of learning. This small gem of a book is certainly one to aid that process. Author: Dramatherapy, Joanne Hensman, Dramatherapist

A comprehensive and thoughtful exploration which stays focused to the topic matter introduced in its title. The content of the book is complicated by the gentle manner in which the authors approach their arguments. Author: Canadian Art Therapy Association Journal

This work describes ways of approaching helping and counselling that are rooted in care and commitment, drawing on the experience and wisdem of youth works, housing support and hostel workers, educators, and settlement and community workers. It explores the key characteristics of those who counsel and teach, and examines aspects of the helping process, focusing on living well, knowing and being oneself, relating to others, and working to make change possible. Author: Book News Inc
