New Sources of Healing
Love cures people, both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.
—Dr. Karl Menninger (1893–1990)
ASSESSING YOUR OWN RESOURCES
As you have read through this book, you may have been doing a personal assessment of your own resources in each situation that has been presented. You may have found yourself wondering if you have the resources necessary to truly respond appropriately for yourself or to aid a client. Some aspects of our resource bank have not yet been touched upon, and this chapter's goal is to expand your thinking about some of the as yet unmentioned resources, particularly as they apply to the new world in which we now find ourselves.
