One of the qualities of the “helper” is the ability to totally focus on someone else, to the exclusion of their own needs. This might lead to difficulty when helping becomes too much of a good thing.

Week 1: The Helping Trap
Week 2: How People Change
Week 3: Helping Someone in Substance Use Recovery
Week 4: Boundaries
