Semen, R. N. (1999 Jan.1). Helping, fixing or serving? University of Cincinnati.Retrieved from:

In the article, “Helping, Fixing, or Serving” (1999), Semen asserts that people see the world in three

different ways broken, weak or whole.

These viewpoints results in how a person connect to their world. Semen views serving as a way to moves beyond the expertise and incorporates both their serves strengthens as well as the strengths of others.

Many times people seek to help or fix rather than service. Semen uses examples of an emergency physician sees delivering a baby as a service rather than fixing the problem. She shares how a nurse moved past professional protocols to serve her by removing her colostomy. In these examples, she explains how experiences shorten the distance between the humans. Semen shows how serving rather than fixing or helping benefits all parties and impacts humanity.
