Conference presentations by final year DClinPsychol students

Leah Glover and Lauren Henshall, two final year Clinical Psychology Trainees, presented posters on their research at the 3rd International Conference on Compassion Focused Therapy in Birmingham last week.

Both research projects draw heavily on the theory of Compassion Focused Therapy developed by Professor Paul Gilbert in Derby and generated a lot of interest, for example Lauren was awarded 2nd prize in the Poster Competition.

Leah is exploring whether self-compassion moderates the relationship between self-blame and well-being in people diagnosed with cancer.
Lauren is exploring whether working in a threat based environment has a negative impact on health-workers’ ability to be compassionate for others; and whether this relationship can be moderated by self-compassion.
