"The Book That Changed How People Relate... And founded HRD Press"

With the Art of Helping (1970), Carkhuff proved the validity and reliability of "empathy", the cornerstone of human experience. 


In so doing, Carkhuff has generated the most important database for

"The Human Sciences." All levels of personalizing and initiating in all areas of human endevor (living, learning, working). Indeed the very foundation for human processing and human generativity has flowed from this scientific truth.
