In Episode 2 of Compassion in a T-Shirt: Short Shares with Professor Paul Gilbert Paul speaks about some remarkable observations he and colleagues made when working with clients, as well as by following the science, and how that led him down the path of warming up the tone of self-talk with a caring motivation and ultimately with compassion. _____ Professor Paul Gilbert, OBE, is Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Derby, Visiting Professor at the University of Queensland Australia, Founder of the Compassionate Mind Foundation, and recently retired Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Derbyshire Health Care Foundation Trust. Professor Gilbert has worked extensively as both therapist and researcher, and his experiences in both led him to develop compassion focused therapy, an evolutionary and bio-psycho-social approach to psychotherapy. He has published extensively, including numerous research articles, academic texts and self-help books. Of note, Professor Gilbert has published his very popular and helpful self-help book Overcoming Depression: A Self-help Guide Using Cognitive Behavioural Techniques, now in its third edition (possibly soon to be updated to a fourth edition!).
