Our instinct is to rally to the aid of someone in need, but we are often stopped by the reality of our own inabilities and fears. We may back away because of two important questions: Will I kw what to say or do? and How can I actually help? Lynda Elliott teaches readers how to help others when the inevitable flashpoints explode in their lives-and how to do it without catching the emotional shrapnel. How can we help people through the crises of life without getting hurt ourselves? From her years as a social worker, Elliott teaches two absolutes: First, what readers need to kw about helping people who are angry, depressed, fearful, grieving, betrayed, tempted, guilty, abused, bitter, sick, discouraged, or simply stuck somehow in life; and second, how readers can take care of themselves while helping others through some of life's toughest times. How Can I Help? encourages counselors, church leaders, and anyone with a hurting neighbor or friend. Its thought-provoking questions and recommended Scriptures for additional study make it an ideal resource for individuals and small groups.
