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.
