His child is killed in an accident?
Her husband has filed for divorce?
She is diagnosed with cancer?
Throughout our lifetimes, we'll find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of not knowing what to say to a friend suffering a loss or trauma. But not doing anything brings more harm than good. As Christians, it is not a question of whether or not to help, but how and when to lend a hand. In the newly revised Helping Those Who Hurt, H. Norman Wright offers practical and sensitive ways to help friends suffering a divorce, the loss of a spouse, a diagnosis of cancer, and other traumas. Specific suggestions tell you not only what to do but what not to do.
Norm is not only a licensed therapist and certified trauma specialist, he also suffered loss with the death of his son at a young age. He writes this guide as a person who knows firsthand about helping others through trauma.
