Richard Joelson, Ph.D., has been a clinical social work psychotherapist, educator, and administrator for 46 years. He has practiced social work in various places including Liberia and has his own private practice in New York. It can be tempting to want to fix everyone’s problems and immediately go into psychoanalyst mode to figure out how you can help them. But sometimes, even with the best intentions, giving advice can do more harm than good. Dr. Joelson author of the book, “Help Me! A Psychotherapist’s Tried-and-True Techniques for a Happier Relationship with Yourself and the People You Love,” teaches us why unsolicited advice can ruin relationships and how we can communicate better.
