About this item

A practical course in cultivating kindness to complement and augment other mindfulness-based approaches.

This book is all about kindness behaviour training (KBT). The authors have drawn on their clinical experience as well as Buddhism to develop a practical course in cultivating kindness, intended to complement and augment other mindfulness-based approaches. Amid the recent explosion of secular mindfulness, their aim is to reemphasize the importance of the heart, introducing the reader to a variety of ways of approaching kindness-based meditation, as well as to how to put kindness into practice in daily life.

A range of psychological theories and areas of research inform the KBT approach, primarily findings from cognitive neuroscience, as well as evolutionary and positive psychology literatures. It also uses a range of exercises found to be helpful in Eastern traditions, such as Buddhism. The book will act as a companion, walking the reader through each week of the course.

Dr Paramabandhu Groves is a consultant psychiatrist working in the National Health Service in the United Kingdom, specializing in the field of addiction. He is a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order.

Dr Jed Shamel works as a clinical psychologist in East London. He is a member of the British Psychological Society, with particular interests in community psychology and compassion-focused interventions with individuals and groups.
