Just had to share a great read- “The Power of Presence” by Doug Manning. Have you ever wondered what to say to someone in pain? Many of us are faced with this situation due to a friend getting a divorce, a family dealing with a child out of control, a loved one diagnosed with cancer or Alzheimer’s disease, someone close is dying, etc.
This book is a great resource for difficult situations we face everyday. Doug Manning discusses the needs of people in pain, how to be a “safe” person, and how to help people heal. He encourages readers to “get into people’s buckets” in order to discover the issues they are dealing with and how to listen to their pain.
