The Helpers

A view of our helpfulness

The Helpers looks at our needs to act both helpless and helpful. It explores what these Ned’s do to ourselves and to those we try to help. It surveys the experiences of trying to help others change and the failings that go with these attempts. While it communicates the frustrations of helping others it explores way to get beyond those frustrations.

“It (The Helpers) suggests some psychological roots for the urge to help, as well as a look at the frustrations that can beset the helper. The book reads easily – more like a cartoon book than a psychology text- but provides quite serious insights…” — Association Management

“Difficult concepts portrayed simply through pictures. Enjoyable for young students and adults.” — The Guidepost (The guidepost is the newspaper of the American Association for Counseling and Development)
