A Friend in Need...: How To Help When Times Are Tough Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you know a friend who's in trouble, depressed, seriously ill, or grieving, or whose behavior you feel is terribly wrong? When our friends are going though difficult times, they need us most, but it's at just such times that many people are at a loss about what to do or say. Psychologist Sol Gordon has written this sensitive, insightful book to teach us how to deal with the serious problems of those we care most about. He looks at a variety of challenging situations: violent or abusive relationships, friends with problem children, addiction, depression, suicidal tendencies, bereavement, and terminal illness. He offers suggestions on how to respond appropriately to delicate situations, from the use of "tough love" to the gentle reminder that we are always ready to listen when our friends need to talk. This is a book that everyone will need at some time in their lives when times are tough.
