Research into the beneficial effect of developing compassion has advanced enormously in the last ten years, with the development of inner compassion being an important therapeutic focus and goal. This book explains how Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) – a process of developing compassion for the self and others to increase well-being and aid recovery – varies from other forms of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
Comprising 30 key points this book explores the founding principles of CFT and outlines the detailed aspects of compassion in the CFT approach. Divided into two parts – Theory and Compassion Practice – this concise book provides a clear guide to the distinctive characteristics of CFT.
Compassion Focused Therapy will be a valuable source for students and professionals in training as well as practising therapists who want to learn more about the distinctive features of CFT.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I should say that I am far from being an unbiased reviewer. I am currently using compassion-focused therapy in both individual and group therapy formats, and am authoring a book applying the model to working with anger. The group (focused on anger) is currently being conducted in a medium-security correctional facility, and I cannot over-emphasize the effectiveness of this model in terms of its benefit to the men I'm working with. In a prison environment, these men are actively using the combination of the purposeful cultivation of compassion and contemporary psychological techniques to transform their lives. It is profound. This model is already a well-respected and increasingly used therapy in the UK, and it deserves to be much more well known here in the United States and elsewhere. I've also used it with excellent results with individual psychotherapy cases involving depression and anxiety in non-correctional settings.
For a more complete description of the Compassionate Mind model, please see my review of Gilbert's "The Compassionate Mind." I will say here, however, that CFT is not a stand-alone therapy model, not another therapy to be added to the growing list of empirically supported treatments (although it is supported by an evolving literature base). Rather, it provides a model for understanding psychological distress that is intensely pragmatic, theoretically sound, based in good science...and which is entirely compatible with most other effective treatment models. The model on which it is based provides patients with a way of understanding their suffering that is non-shaming and non-blaming, and in doing so helps patients approach their difficulties head-on using any number of techniques. I have found it to be the single most effective approach for working with experiential avoidance that I have ever encountered. Because of this, Gilbert's approach helps to magnify the effectiveness of a wide variety of therapeutic strategies by increasing the patient's ability to relate to their suffering in helpful ways and to utilize the techniques effectively. CFT makes heavy use of mindfulness training and includes techniques specifically designed to take advantage of what we know about contemporary affective neuroscience, particularly with regard to Oxytocin and the neuroscience of affiliation.
Specifically with regard to this book, in my opinion it is the perfect introduction to CFT. Organized in a number of relatively short, pithy chapters, it presents the model's fairly detailed theoretical foundation in bite-sized chunks, perfect for experienced clinicians and graduate students alike. I highly recommend it for any clinicians who work with patients struggling with affective difficulties, particularly those who utilize mindfulness approaches, ACT, DBT, and other CBT models. I'm planning to use it as a text in a seminar. And at $14, you can get it for the price of a few cups of coffee. Highly recommended.
His three emotional and motivational system model will remain as one of the most comprehensive and powerful tools for every man who tries to understand our real motives.
Man has the compelling drive to be close and belong to others. Tha`s why he has inherited a compassive and affective emotional system. Such system is shut down by its opposit: the treath-defensive system which is activated precisely when the belonging is threatened. A paradox, but a common existential fact. The picture is mor complex since there`s another emotional system that has to do with search of status and the consecuent competence every human experience since kinder garden to the end his life.
Finally I learnt that reasoning come after our emotional regulation, via the compassionate system, is activated. I`ts intelligent to soothe my emotions first and Gilbert tells you how.
I`m greatful with Gilbert since now on I have the groundings to activate and enhance my soothing and affiliative system throuhg compassion. As a man I`m aware how Ì`ve been trained to shut down the emotional system that has permited human kind to survive.
Don`t hesitate, buy it now and increase your consultation.
