From the introduction:
"Helping others is all about “being in relationship”, and therefore about developing personhood — full human beingness. Yes, it’s great that we have training, experience, and skills. But unless we can show up fully in our relationships and be authentically ourselves, our presence offers less than its full potential and we end up feeling generally less fulfilled.

 

This book provides a self-study reflective practice guide for:

 

From this guidebook you will learn ways to practice reflecting on who and how you are being — both with your clients and with the other important people in your life. You will probably discover some old habits and patterns that are limiting your full performance as a helper or as a friend. You may have some important insights — some ‘aha’ moments — that can help to move you forward towards greater fulfillment in work and in life.

 

You will also be offered practical ways to help others to reflect, to stay present, to simply be aware of the moment and of what is happening in their present experience. This way of simply being is illuminating. It is an effective way of reducing unnecessary stress, of clearing away harmful thoughts and emotions, of remembering where you are in life and what is true for you. As a reflective practice it allows insight and clarity to emerge out of confusion and helps you to listen to your inner wisdom. It helps to put everything into its proper perspective."
