Central London Humanists (CLH) are pleased to welcome Dr Rebekah Honey as she attempts to answer the question: Can compassion bridge the gap between opposing viewpoints?
Compassion-Focused Therapy is a means to improving mental health and contentment. What can this approach teach us about understanding and persuading others?
Dr Rebekah Honey is a Clinical Psychologist who has been practising for over 20 years. She shares ideas from compassion-focused therapy, discussing how these can be used to develop a kinder and more effective relationship with ourselves and others.
She will consider how this approach can be applied to bridging the gap between different positions using covid vaccination as an example. Can this help us to move towards a place of greater understanding and compassion between people with conflicting views?
Doors open at 6.30 pm for the talk at 7.00 p.m
Please arrive before the talk to enjoy a glass of wine from our charity wine bar and mingle. All profits from the wine bar will be donated to MIND, a charity that provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
