Training people in compassion can have a wide range of physiological, psychological and therapeutic benefits.
Compassion has been widely accepted to be one of the most crucial abilities of the human mind for more than 3000 years.
Most religions appreciate the power of compassion.
In the last 30 years, Psychology has focused on the positive impact compassion has on the human brain.
One of the most important processes in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), is to stimulate a desire to cultivate a compassionate self and use a compassionate perspective (Gilbert, 2009)
Clients are invited to imagine the potential benefits of having certain qualities, in particular wisdom, strength and a commitment to be compassionate (Gilbert and Choden, 2013)
CFT uses a range of breathing, postural, imaginal, recall and method acting techniques to help people have an experience of what it is, or could be like, to be a compassionate self (Cannon, 2012)
