The Art of Comforting

420_line

What do you say to someone who’s suffering?  How do you connect with another human being in need in a meaningful way?  Most of us struggle to come up with the right words, or do the right thing to help someone who needs help.  Val Walker is an expert in the unique art of providing comfort—having worked with disabled vets and bereavement support groups for many years.  She provides incredible valuable advice in her new book, The Art of Comforting: What to Say and Do for People in Distress.
