About the Author

Joshua J. Knabb, PsyD, ABPP, is director of the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology Program and associate professor of psychology in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at California Baptist University. He is also author/coauthor of three previous books for Christian clients: Contemplative Prayer for Christians with Chronic Worry (with Thomas Frederick), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Christian Clients, and Faith-Based ACT for Christian Clients.


"In this workbook, Joshua Knabb offers a clear, biblical understanding of the transformative power of compassion-for others and for ourselves-and offers a path to fully embracing God's unconditional love as its greatest model and source. Dr. Knabb clearly lays out skills that will help readers find freedom from the burden of shame while drawing closer to God in the process." Jamie D. Aten, PhD, founder and executive director, Humanitarian Disaster Institute, Wheaton College

"Joshua Knabb has written an excellent and very helpful workbook for Christian clients, one that uses a compassion-based approach that integrates Christian and biblical insights with sound psychological perspectives. The book contains many practical exercises, journaling assignments, and biblical and case examples that are Christian-sensitive-focusing on thinking, feeling, behaving, and attending and imagining with compassion-and centered in a deeper relationship and attachment to God. Highly recommended!" Siang-Yang Tan, PhD, professor of psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary, and author of Counseling and Psychotherapy: A Christian Perspective "This breakthrough book brings together the secular, evidence-based tradition of compassion-oriented interventions with the longstanding Christian tradition of divine love to help Christian clients overcome the debilitating effects of shame and develop a compassionate approach to themselves and others based on the Christian's relationship with God. Based in sound Christian theory, supported by research, and including many practical exercises, the book will be a godsend to Christian therapists and their clients." Eric L. Johnson, PhD, senior research professor, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
