An excellent book for practitioners and others interested in Compassion.
Edited by the wonderful Paul Gilbert, this is a book that I have found extreemely useful. Compassion can be used specifcally for work with people who have survived abusive experiences, and also for those experiencing shame, self-attacking identities and low self esteem.
It reminded me, that without a compassionate approach to working with people - all your other professional skills are invalid. Since refocussing my work - I have seen a change in my therapuetic relationship with clients, their ability to engage with therapy and thier faith in the possibility of change.

Great book for therapists and clients. Paul writes in a humourous accessible way, giving personal examples which bring the book to life. Compassion Based Therapy includes Gestalt, Mindfulness and Reparenting techniques that might be familiar to many therapists alongside a Cognitive base. The models help bring understanding on how excessive trauma can inhibit the ability to receive empathy & caring. A long book but an easy read!

Recommend this book for all psychotherapists or counsellors. Truly an inspiring read full of inspirational thinking and really gets to grip with compassion.
