Give to Your Heart's Content

Giving can leave people depleted and frustrated; even the most compassionate are at risk for burnout. When that happens, it's time to take stock says psychologist Dr. Linda Harper. Give to Your Heart's Content (review or buy) offers three inventories for self-assessment to help people identify their giving styles (Trader Scale, Martyr Scale, Controller Scale). Through insight and examples, Harper shows how burned-out givers can replace their old approaches with giving that replenishes heart and soul.
