by: Paul Gilbert

It has been recognised for some time that developing compassion for oneself and others can help us face up to and win through challenges or hardship and find a sense of inner peace. However in modern societies we rarely focus on this key process that underpins successful coping and happiness and can be quick to dismiss the impact of modern living on our minds and well-being. Instead we concentrate on 'doing, achieving' and having' . Bestselling author and leading authority on depression, Professor Paul Gilbert takes you through mind training exercises for developing kindness and compassion for self and others, to help you learn how to use compassion to soothe your emotions, increase your courage and resilience, and enhance your feelings of contentment and well-being.
