Abstract:  Self-help is seen as a way of dealing with problems such as illness, divorce, and the death of a loved one. Talking about these problems with others who have lived through them is a way of coping and learning how to deal with tomorrow. This guide covers the ground, starting with where to find self-help groups, starting a group and finding like-minded people, and dvelopment and maintaining momemtum, structure, keeping people involved, and problem solving. The topics covered are not dealt with in great detail, but an outline of how to approach them is set down--enough to be a useful starting point.
