This manual is designed for use by practitioners working in a one-to-one setting, with groups, or for the individual reader. It aims to look at how thoughts and feelings around threat lead to problems, how problems are managed, what the role of compassion is, and how compassion can help us to manage better.
It makes practical use of case studies and thinking activities. Divided into two parts, the first part explains the model of Compassionate Mind and the second part introduces useful interventions. The CD-rom contains handouts and Powerpoint slides.
