What better time for "healing conversations?"
At this time when thousands of people are responding to hurricane katrina, "healing conversations" offers us invaluable suggestions and guidelines for how to ask for, offer and, yes, especially, accept help during difficult, sometimes mind-numbing, circumstances. these stories enable any one--whether you are a volunteer, teacher, doctor, student, government leader, lay counselor, or even just a friend, family member or confidant--to be more at ease when dealing with the unimaginably difficult situations both survivors and responders are encountering during this massive recovery effort. if there ever was a time when this book can speak volumes to all of us, this is it. david w. oberdorfer, m.d., f.a.c.s., m.f.a. emergency room physician & immediate past president, "society for humanism in medicine"
