Receiving Help in Crisis
Receiving help in crisis can be difficult, especially when you’re used to helping others. Gene and Carol Kent return in part 2 of their interview with Jeanne Dennis.
Men Helping Men
Their son, who was incarcerated for murder, had no one to help or advise him before he made his terrible choice. Gene discusses the importance of men receiving regular support and accountability from other men.
Spouses Helping Each Other
Gene and Carol also talk about how spouses can serve and love each other through crisis. They give advice for when one spouse withdraws.
Accepting Help from Others
The Kents had to learn to accept help and compassion from others. Before their son’s arrest, they had been the ones offering help to others.
Giving Help to Others
It’s hard to know how to show you care when others are hurting. Gene and Carol give advice on how to show compassion and give the right kind of help to people experiencing a crisis.
