The Power of Presence
Helping People Help People
by Doug Manning
The most important skill that a professional or a lay caregiver can possess is knowing how to be present for people in pain. How to be comfortable with their experience. How to "get in another person's bucket." Doug takes the viewer on a journey through each of the difficult transitions in life--aging, dying, grief, care giving--and outlines how to be a solid and unwavering comfort for those people in your world.
This DVD set follows each chapter in the book, The Power of Presence, and provides a wonderful training or springboard for discussion. The book and DVD are custom designed for trainers with questions and tips at the back of the book and suggestions on when to stop the DVD and have further discussion. What an easy way to provide quality training for your staff, your ministry teams, or your volunteers.
This is an incredible resource for anyone in elder care, death care, or pastoral care professions.
