To help people in treating their problems may mean even to help them define their problem and select a strategy at stages where so far they are left alone by formalized services which require as a starting point a rather late stage of the process where the person in the need state consciously takes an action.
The sentence above comes from the British National Corpus. My question is:
Is 'help sb in doing sth' a good structure to use? If so, what's the difference between 'help sb in doing sth' and 'help sb (to) do sth'?
Thank you in advance.
