What do you say to someone who has just experienced a loss or other trauma? “Saying the Right Thing When You Don’t Know What to Say” provides a clear understanding of what is necessary to create a sympathetic, reassuring and safe environment, so that the wounded person can express their pain, process their feelings and begin to heal the devastation, fear and confusion they are experiencing.

“Everyone experiences loss in the course of their lives,” states Paula Shaw. “Most of us would like to comfort and support someone who is in pain, yet we may unwittingly inflict more pain by referring to our memory bank of old clichés. This book offers comforting words and behaviors that will soothe anyone you seek to support during a devastating or hopeless time,” she added.

Whether in the workplace or in our private lives, “Saying the Right Thing…” is a straightforward look at the dos and don’ts of compassionate behavior and thoughtful communication. Designed as a simple, practical roadmap, each section features illustrations of words and behaviors that offer consolation, reassurance and relief.

Knowing what to say can defuse a hurtful situation. A lesson in kindness, this book can be of value to teachers, human resources professionals, law enforcement professionals, social workers and anyone who desires to interact with others in the most positive and constructive manner. Positive communication might even save a life! For more information about the book and the author, please visit: https://www.amazon.com/Paula-Shaw/e/B07KXCQ468ref=dbs_p_ebk_r00_abau_000000
