Samenvatting

The creator of the viral hit Empathy Cards teams up with a compassion expert to produce a visually stunning and groundbreaking illustrated guide to help you increase your emotional intelligence and learn how to offer comfort and support when someone you know is in pain.

When someone you know is hurting, you want to let her know that you care. But many people don t know what words to use or are afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. This thoughtful, instructive guide, from empathy expert Dr. Kelsey Crowe and greeting card maverick Emily McDowell, blends well-researched, actionable advice with the no-nonsense humor and the signature illustration style of McDowell's immensely popular Empathy Cards, to help you feel confident in connecting with anyone experiencing grief, loss, illness, or any other difficult situation.

Written in a how-to, relatable, we ve-all-been-that-deer-in-the-headlights kind of way, There Is No Good Card for This isn t a spiritual treatise on how to make you a better person or a scientific argument about why compassion matters. It is a helpful illustrated guide to effective compassion that takes you, step by step by step, past the paralysis of thinking about someone in a difficult time to actually doing something (or nothing) with good judgment instead of fear.

There Is No Good Card for This features workbook exercises, sample dialogs, and real-life examples from Dr. Crowe s research, including her popular Empathy Bootcamps that give people tools for building relationships when it really counts. Whether it s a coworker whose mother has died, a neighbor whose husband has been in a car accident, or a friend who is seriously ill, There Is No Good Card for This teaches you how to be the best friend you can be to someone in need.

Recensie(s)

A heartfelt and practical guide for caring when it really matters. -- Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In This book is a gift. It's the wonderful crash course in Humanity 101 that none of us got to take in school. Without judgment, and with humor and compassion, this book shows you how to show up as the best possible version of yourself when it matters most. -- Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic This book makes complicated things simple and helps us say to each other what we're dying to say. When I hand it to my friends, they'll laugh, cry and breathe easier. The realness and support in these pages feels like oxygen in a world suffocating from shininess and formality. -- Glennon Doyle Melton, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Love Warrior and Carry On, Warrior This book has fundamentally changed how I approach helping and caring for others. Compassion and creativity literally leap off the page. It's full of sage advice on how to be a better friend, colleague, family member, and partner to those who are suffering. -- Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals At last, a book for the vast swath of us who really care but don't know how to show it sometimes. Kelsey and Emily made this enormous and complex issue accessible and so wonderfully helpful. It's just right for any human being who ever plans on being close to another. -- BJ Miller, MD Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF
