 In just over two weeks time, Professor Paul Gilbert (UK), founder of compassion focused therapy – one of the most influential of the new psychotherapies – and his colleague Dr. Dennis Tirch (USA), author of the Compassionate Mind Guide to Anxiety, are coming to the Northern Rivers for talks/workshops. These are their only Australian events other than the international conference in Sydney which brought them to Australia.


On Thursday, 4th July, 5.30-7.00, Lismore City Council, North Coast Medicare Local, Northern Rivers Social Development Council, Southern Cross University and the University Centre for Rural Health are sponsoring Paul to give a free talk for Northern Rivers residents at the Lismore Workers Club. The talk is entitled: Strengthening the Mind through the Power of Self-Compassion. Paul’s work is thought provoking and relevant to us all. The event is free to everyone. Do come if you can; and please invite any family, friends, colleagues, clients, students or patients that you think could be interested.
