Psychologists and researchers have only recently begun to understand the power of human compassion and its relationship to mental health disorders. What is clear is that building compassion for oneself and for others improves emotion regulation, decreases anxiety, depression, rumination, and perfectionism, and can help people develop more accurate self-concepts. Kindness and self-compassion have also been shown to soothe fear, which is one reason why compassion-focused therapy (CFT) is a natural fit for the treatment of all forms of anxiety. "The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Overcoming Anxiety" presents a revolutionary approach to anxiety treatment that is rooted in the latest research on mindfulness and compassion therapies. The book introduces the CFT model and explains how readers can alleviate anxiety by becoming more aware of their anxiety and practicing compassionate attention, a new way of focusing on thoughts that is compassionate rather than self-critical. Readers then build on compassionate attention by developing compassionate reasoning skills, compassionate behavior toward themselves and others, and compassionate emotion and feeling. Research studies have shown that practicing kindness and compassion soothes experiences of fear. The detailed and user-friendly techniques for overcoming anxiety presented in this book can be adapted for specific anxiety disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder or social phobia.
