JOBS TO HELP (Des Métiers Pour Aider – GEORG 2010)

(Under the direction of Brigitte Zellner Keller)

How to help professionally while respecting the other person, without being intrusive, without doing things for the other person?

It is not enough to master one’s art, such as psychosocial or neuropsychological support, it is also essential to master the art of helping.

For example, helping the other person often consists of allowing him/her to learn something new so that he/she feels better, whether it be physically, emotionally or cognitively.

How do you encourage your client’s desire to learn and change?

In this book, we show that the cognitive-behavioral paradigm is interesting for to develop this art of helping intervention. Indeed, this approach is essentially built around the notions of learning and adaptation: in particular, learning new ways of acting, thinking and of acting, thinking and representing the world (Ladouceur et al. 2001; Fontaine et al. 1984; Cottraux,

We show how the tools used in the cognitive-behavioral approach can be easily adapted in
easily adaptable to professional settings based on a helping relationship but other than psychotherapy.

Concrete examples document how to use these tools.
