Shows how to maximise social potential
Marianna's books are written to help people as she has always had an interest in psychology and, most particularly, social psychology. She has worked as a houseparent in a residential international sixth form college, being involved in the pastoral care of 48 16-20 year-olds, for six years and gaining valuable counselling skills and much insight into the problems facing this age group. Her books are all practical in nature and very complete requiring no further research even for discussion questions. Although her early books are aimed at adults helping children and young people, she is moving on to books that help adults and young people develop themselves - How to be a People Person is the result. She believes that those of us that have the means, should help and support those around us that are less advantaged than ourselves in whatever way. We should treat every person with respect and try to reserve judgement, especially when of personalities or experiences we don't understand. Marianna believes we all need a helping hand at times and hopes, through her books, to help others either directly because they have read the books themselves or indirectly because someone else has read the books and has used the ideas to help them.
