Reviews

"In The Art of Comforting, Val Walker points to a great irony in our society today: as hyper-'connected' as we are, deep down, many of us fear that we lack the ability to effectively comfort another human being. This wise and inspiring book provides a step-by-step guide to sitting down and establishing a human-to-human connection, even in the most difficult or chaotic situations."
--Greg Mortenson, New York Times bestselling author of Three Cups of Tea

"The Art of Comforting is must reading for everyone...The message is instantly applicable as well as enormously comforting."
--Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Mother- Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom "With clarity, compassion and wisdom, Walker teaches the art and the craft of comforting others and ourselves. In today's distressed and frenetic world, she does us all a great favor. This fine book is a resource for all those who want to be able to help friends, family members and other people who are in need of our kindness."
--Mary Pipher, New York Times bestselling author of Reviving Ophelia, and The Shelter of Each Other "In an effort to write the book she couldn't herself find, rehabilitation counselor Walker discusses the nature of comforting and illustrates how to restore this most important skill. Her message comes not only from experience, but from others in the grief/trauma counseling field, in this guidebook that rings true and pulls the reader in for more. Recommended for all interested adults."
--Library Journal
