Wisdom and Compassion in Buddhist Psychotherapy
Wisdom and Compassion form the basis of the path to transformation in Mahayana Buddhism. How does the ancient contemplative science of India and Tibet influence contemporary psychotherapy? In this lecture, Dr. Neale discusses his clinical approach to working with patients informed by Contemplative Psychology (Joe Loizzo) and Interpersonal Neurobiology (Dan Siegel). He illuminates how we are adversely influenced by unresolved trauma, a reified self-perception, low distress tolerance, and a host of maladaptive coping strategies. Given this causal matrix, Dr. Neale then describes the non dual method of wisdom and compassion that yields self-insight, emotional flexibility, and harmonious lifestyle, reinforced within the crucible of a safe, mutual enriching relationship.
