The importance of compassion as an antidote to human suffering is a long and venerable history with recent research evidence to support it. Originally developed to help individuals who suffer high levels of shame and self criticism, compassion-focused therapy encourages the client to employ self-soothing actions, and to generate feelings of inner warmth and self-reassurance as they engage with CBT.

Compassion-Focused Therapy: An Introduction to Theory, Research and Practice provides an explanatory introduction to compassion-focused therapy as well as an overview of the field, indicating how the approach can be used in practice. In this book Paul Gilbert covers topics such as:

symbolic thinking and the construction of a sense of self
compassion focused formulation
components of compassion and the compassionate mind circle
group therapy

This much needed accessible and knowledgeable introduction covers theory, practice and research. It is essential reading for psychotherapists, counsellors and other mental health professionals.
