By supporting others and promoting change, helping professionals also enjoy the benefit of personal growth. Changing People's Lives While Transforming Your Own is filled with narratives from individuals from social work, psychology, counseling, and allied health fields. Inspiring and stirring, this book vividly illustrates how to promote social justice and foster global human rights. Its accompanying DVD features stories from a social justice mission to Nepal reaching out to neglected children. Students and professionals will find this book a profound reminder of how targeted social justice efforts have resulted in transformative experiences.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.

"…a small easy-to read volume. They write in a very informal way, designed to encourage people to get out there and do something to help others as a means to find their own passion. This is a book that might be useful for a course in service learning because there are sections that discuss topics such as helping skills, especially listening and altruism, and there are scholarly references to other material." (PsycCRITIQUES, November 11, 2009)
