What would you do?

 

Your Mom and Dad tell you that your godmother has cancer and is in the hospital for treatment and an operation. 

A friend confides in you tearfully that her parents are talking about a divorce. 

Your classmate sends you a message that you are invited to his grandfather's memorial service. 

 

What do you do?  What do you say?

 

This is a class about sharpening your skills as a caring person and learning specific ways to communicate with and give help to a friend or relative going through a crisis.  One of those skills is knowing your own limitations and when a troubled person needs adult help and maybe a professional expert.  But most of the skills are practical and helpful for enriching your relationships with the friends and relatives you care about.

 

Dr. Richards is currently rewriting a book that he previously published on this topic. He also taught this class to high schoolers in Southern California.  Dr. Richard’s experience includes serving as a pastor and chaplain to people in crisis in hospitals, churches, schools, and law enforcement agencies.
