Reviews and Endorsements

"This book is a peek inside the minds of clinical scientists who are doing cutting-edge research on attachment, compassion, shame, parenting, mindfulness, and positive psychology. The content offered on this cluster of topics is thoroughly satisfying while it inspires readers to pursue their own informed questions. Highly recommended for curious clinicians of all stripes - students, academics, and professionals." - Christopher Germer, PhD, Harvard Medical School, USA.

"Compassion focussed psychotherapy is the most promising treatment for emotion disorders that have not responded well to other therapies. This is simply the best introduction to this extraordinarily valuable approach. It is highly recommended for experienced practitioners, as well as those starting out in psychotherapeutic practice." - Professor Peter Fonagy OBE, Head of Division for Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL.

"Packed with cutting edge research, clinical wisdom and a satisfying mixture of compassionate commitment and serious scholarship, this book is a major contribution to understanding psychological wellbeing. It is a treat of a book written by experts who care for their subject deeply, and will be of great help for researchers, mental health professionals, students and many more." - Graham Music, PHD, Tavistock Clinic London, UK and author of Nurturing Children and Nurturing Natures.
