Acceptance, Mindfulness, and Action: Transcending the Enemies of Compassion

Effective engagement with clients depends on compassion, but there are barriers to compassion, hidden in the normal processes of human mind. In this talk I will present a seven component model drawn from Acceptance & Commitment Therapy that suggests how to dismantle these barriers. I will show applications of these concepts to social justice, the therapeutic relationship, and to therapy itself.
