Description

Applying the art and science of self-compassion in day-to-day therapy work.

Teaching our clients not only mindfulness—how to be aware in the present moment—but also how to “sit with” and accept difficult feelings and emotions (self-compassion) can lead to tremendous healing. This book does just that, giving therapists concrete tools to introduce this concept to clients for deeper change and transformation.

Tim Desmond, LMFT, is a Buddhist scholar, therapist in private practice, and co-founder of Morning Sun Mindfulness Center in Alstead, NH. He is the author of Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy (W.W. Norton, 2015) and co-author of The Self-Compassion Deck (PESI, 2016). He offers training and consultation to therapists around the world, helping them to integrate mindfulness practices into their work.

Tim has presented at Yale University, the Institute of Meditation and Psychotherapy Colloquium, Greater Oregon Behavioral Health Conference, and the International Society for Ethics in Psychology and Psychiatry. His writings on mindfulness and self-compassion have appeared in the Psychotherapy Networker and the Mindfulness Bell magazines. Tim was interviewed about practices for self-compassion by the Huffington Post, and writes for major mental health websites such as MadInAmerica.com.

He developed and teaches “dialogue-based mindfulness therapy,” a technique for teaching mindfulness and self-compassion in which the client is guided through a meditation while giving the clinician feedback about their experience in real-time. The clinician uses this feedback to adjust and custom tailor the meditation instructions in order to ensure the client learns the technique effectively.

In 2005, Tim was ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh into the Order of Interbeing after many years of practicing in that tradition. He leads meditation retreats around the U.S. and teaches regularly at Morning Sun Mindfulness Center in NH. In addition to the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, Tim teaches Nonviolent Communication and Positive Psychology.
