A good overview of different situations in which a healthy, healing conversation could be used, and how to go about doing it. Not quite as in-depth as I was looking for, but still good from a secular point of view.

Sometimes, some healing conversations just have to be lead by the spirit. But that only comes if you have studied it out in your mind first. :) Still a good book overall.

I liked this book. It was oddly specific with lots of little chapters on a lot of distinct situations when people may need support...after a car accident, went cleaning out old photos, after a miscarriage, waiting for biopsy results etc. There is no radical magic to any of the suggestions...a lot is about really caring, really listening and letting the other person lead.

Very useful book - people telling their stories of what helped them during times of crisis

I won this book at an event, and while some of the stories gave room for pause, it was a book better in concept.
