Course in The Art of Helping and Caring for Yourself (II)

How to help and relate to others

In order to complete module 2, it is advisable to have previously completed module 1.

Module 1 of The Art of Helping and Taking Care of Yourself focuses on the intrapersonal or internal experience field.

Module 2 focuses on balance and harmony in interpersonal relationships and with the reality that surrounds us.

The two modules are units unto themselves, but they complement and reinforce each other's effectiveness.

The purpose of this course is to experientially teach a structured process to develop the potential for help and improvement we all have. For this, we will use an integrative approach that works on three complementary and necessary areas:

  • 1. Developing the potential to harmonize with our internal experience (mindfulness),
  • 2. Developing the potential to harmonize with others (attitudes and values),
  • 3. Developing the potential to harmonize with reality (interdependence and wisdom)

We will use various cognitive, experiential and introspective methods and techniques for this.


Chapter 1.
Balance and harmony with reality

Knowledge and experience of some essential aspects of reality that harmonize us and favor a more satisfactory, adequate and realistic helping relationship.

  • 1. Confidence: Trust in one's own potential and abilities, as in those who participate in the intervention, is essential for an effective and satisfactory action.
  • 2. Interdependence: Life is interactive, it is governed by interdependence. Our well-being is based on collaboration with others. Opening up to give and take is essential, especially in the helping relationship.
  • 3. Transience: Everything is in permanent change and transformation, learning to live with that changing reality adapts us to reality and gives us an opportunity for freshness and renewal at every moment.<
  • 4. Opening: Reality is not absolute, but relative; It depends on many factors, especially our attitude and perspective. Thus, we are not totally determined, we can learn to be open and adaptive.

Chapter 2.
Balance in relationships

Motivation and values that harmonize us in interpersonal relationships and contribute to give meaning, quality and satisfaction to the helping relationship.

  • 1. Equanimity and gratitude: We all want to feel the best possible well-being and avoid suffering. And to achieve this we need the help and collaboration of others, from the moment we are born until we die. Helping professionals also need this.
  • 2. Generosity: Society or any system can only work well with the help of everyone. Generosity not only makes the recipient feel good, it also harmonizes the one who exercises it.
  • 3. Compassion: Sensitivity and empathy to the suffering of others and also your own, makes the helping relationship satisfying and rewarding.
  • 4. Patience: A non-reactive attitude that allows you to remain calm and face challenges and difficult situations with serenity and intelligence.
  • 5. Joy: A positive approach to life that helps to enjoy life and see the opportunities it offers, even in illness and difficult situations.
