As a clinical social worker, I facilitate support groups and fear of something comes up on a weekly basis. This is a good resource book that someone could keep in their purse or pocket so they could easily get to it as needed. It is written so that the average person can understand it. It stays away all the clinical jargon. I will be recommending this book to some of my clients. The book gives helpful examples of how the guidelines can be applied to a given situation. The book isn’t to lengthy for those people who either do not like to read or have a short attention span.
