Have you ever had a friend in trouble, but not know how to help them? In today’s episode, Sara hears from someone who is concerned that a friend is going to get married to an abusive partner. Looking from the outside-in, it may be obvious how bad or dangerous a relationship has become. However, those involved may not be able to separate passion from poison. In this episode Sara invites Michell Stanley, holistic psychotherapist and licensed social worker to help understand how we can be there for our friends in an extremely difficult situation while still not abandoning ourselves - and how to separate helpfulness from judgement. Finally we will learn what is actually helpful - and what just makes us as the outsider looking in - feel better.
