In How to Help Your Hurting Friend, trusted author Susie Shellenberger (Sisterhood Magazine) addresses the most vital, personal, and life-challenging issues in young women's lives so you can respond in love and wisdom when friends are coping with crises. Presented in handbook form, this biblically based, relevant-book empowers you to be a voice of support and love when those around you are struggling. No issue is taboo (topics include self-cutting and sexual abuse) and advice is ever vague. This book distills the wisdom of the Bible and combines it with the wisdom of many experienced Christian counselors. Previously published as Help! My Friend Is Hurting, this reissued edition is complete with sidebars and helpful illustrations.
