In Episode 5, Paul talks about the inhibitors to compassion, the fears, blocks and resistances. As Paul says, in compassion focused therapy working with fears, blocks and resistances is the work! _____ Professor Paul Gilbert, OBE, is Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Derby, Visiting Professor at the University of Queensland Australia, Founder of the Compassionate Mind Foundation, and recently retired Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Derbyshire Health Care Foundation Trust. Professor Gilbert has worked extensively as both therapist and researcher, and his experiences in both led him to develop compassion focused therapy, an evolutionary and bio-psycho-social approach to psychotherapy. He has published extensively, including numerous research articles, academic texts and self-help books. One of his many considerable contributions to the science of compassion and compassion in therapy is the notion of fears, blocks and resistances to compassion, the inhibitors, or things that get in the way. He has written extensively about this concept, most notably in a 2011 paper where he and colleagues developed the Fears of Compassion Scale (see link below). _____ Fears of compassion: Development of three self-report measures by Paul Gilbert, Kirsten McEwan, Marcela Matos, Amanda Rivis (2011) https://bpspsychub.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1348/147608310X526511

Lecture summary: Globalization has lifted millions out of poverty. Globalization is a weapon the rich use to exploit the poor. Globalization builds bridges across national boundaries. Globalization fuels the populism and great-power competition that is tearing the world apart. When it comes to the politics of free trade and open borders, the camps are dug in, producing a kaleidoscope of claims and counterclaims, unlikely alliances, and unexpected foes. But what exactly are we fighting about? And how might we approach these issues more productively? In this talk, Anthea introduces her book, co-authored with Nicolas Lamp, Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why it Matters, exploring the interests, logics, and ideologies driving these intractable debates. Examining six competing narratives about the virtues and vices of globalization, Anthea and Nicolas provide a framework for understanding current debates about economic globalization and showcase a more integrative way of thinking about complex problems. Their approach not only helps enable us to understand where we have come apart but also how we might come back together. Flyer: Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why it Matters Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why It Matters Anthea Roberts is a Professor at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) who specializes in public international law, international trade and investment law, and the effect of geopolitical change on global governance. From 2008-2015, she taught at the London School of Economics, Columbia Law School and Harvard Law School. Anthea has chaired the ANU Working Group on Geoeconomics since 2018 and was a Visiting Professor at Harvard Law School teaching Geoeconomics in 2020. She is currently teaching courses on complexity, risk and resilience. In 2019, the League of Scholars named Anthea the world’s leading international law scholar and Australia’s leading law scholar based on the quality of her publications and the quantity of citations they had received in the previous five years. Her last book, Is International Law International? (2017), won numerous prizes, including the American Society of International Law’s Book Prize, and was Oxford University Press’s top-selling law monograph worldwide in 2017-2018.

George III - The Life & Reign Of Britain's Most Misunderstood Monarch -- Andrew Roberts

So what you're saying is...

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 18, 2021 37:48


Our guest on this week's #SWYSI is renowned historian & biographer Andrew Roberts, author of a critically-acclaimed new biography of King George III. Britain's longest-reigning king, George III has gone down in history as 'the cruellest tyrant of this age' (Thomas Paine, eighteenth century), 'a sovereign who inflicted more profound and enduring injuries upon this country than any other modern English king' (W.E.H. Lecky, nineteenth century), 'one of England's most disastrous kings' (J.H. Plumb, twentieth century) and as the pompous monarch of the musical Hamilton (twenty-first century). Andrew Roberts's magnificent new biography takes entirely the opposite view. It portrays George as intelligent, benevolent, scrupulously devoted to the constitution of his country and (as head of government as well as head of state) navigating the turbulence of eighteenth-century politics with a strong sense of honour and duty. He was a devoted husband and family man, a great patron of the arts and sciences, keen to advance Britain's agricultural capacity ('Farmer George') and determined that her horizons should be global. He could be stubborn and self-righteous, but he was also brave, brushing aside numerous assassination attempts, galvanising his ministers and generals at moments of crisis and stoical in the face of his descent - five times during his life - into a horrifying loss of mind. The book gives a detailed, revisionist account of the American Revolutionary War, persuasively taking apart a significant proportion of the Declaration of Independence, which Roberts shows to be largely Jeffersonian propaganda. In a later war, he describes how George's support for William Pitt was crucial in the battle against Napoleon. And he makes a convincing, modern diagnosis of George's terrible malady, very different to the widely accepted medical view and to popular portrayals. Roberts writes, 'the people who knew George III best loved him the most', and that far from being a tyrant or incompetent, George III was one of our most admirable monarchs. The diarist Fanny Burney, who spent four years at his court and saw him often, wrote 'A noble sovereign this is, and when justice is done to him, he will be as such acknowledged'. In presenting this fresh view of Britain's most misunderstood monarch, George III shows one of Britain's premier historians at his sparkling best."

About the Author Andrew Roberts is a biographer and historian of international renown whose books include Salisbury: Victorian Titan (winner of the Wolfson Prize for History), Masters and Commanders (winner of the Emery Reves Award), The Storm of War (winner of the British Army Book Prize), Napoleon the Great (winner of the Grand Prix of the Fondation Napoléon and the Los Angeles Times Biography Prize) and Leadership in War. His Churchill: Walking with Destiny (2018) was acclaimed as 'undoubtedly the best single-volume life of Churchill ever written' (Sunday Times) and was a major bestseller in UK and USA. Roberts is a Fellow of the Royal Societies of Literature and the Royal Historical Society, and a Trustee of the International Churchill Society.

What is compassion? On the one hand, it is a simple algorithm: detecting suffering and taking action to alleviate or prevent it. And on the other, it is a rich array of qualities and characteristics all of which make up what it means to be human. Professor Paul Gilbert takes us through all of that, as well as how concepts of compassion can be helpful in a therapy sitting, and finishing with an emphasis on courage! _____ Professor Paul Gilbert, OBE, is Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Derby, Visiting Professor at the University of Queensland Australia, Founder of the Compassionate Mind Foundation, and recently retired Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Derbyshire Health Care Foundation Trust.

I recently had the true pleasure of chatting with my former teacher: violinist and pedagogue extraordinaire Brian Lewis!  He is an exceptionally dedicated and passionate performer who is committed to growing the legacies of his own two incredible teachers, the great Dorothy DeLay and Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. In our conversation we touched on... How Brian's artistic path has unfolded, from his own childhood studies to today's pedagogical pursuits (3:13) Teaching the language of music (11:50) Practicing concentration, and the importance of shifting your focus to refocusing for optimizing your practice (13:00) The legacy of Dorothy DeLay: how she empowered her students (including Brian) through positivity, removing judgement from her instruction, encouraging questions, and presenting the possibilities of playing to help young musicians sort out their own paths (15:01) Leading teaching with love, and the lasting, negative impacts of “abusive teaching” (25:13) Practicing habits (formed by DeLay and Suzuki) that helped set his playing apart, focusing on simplicity, the importance of listening, and repeating your own study of a score (30:01) Brian's advice for collegiate musicians to use your time in conservatory to prepare for a life as a professional musician (35:09) The lineage of musicianship and importance of flexibility (42:15) Brian's answers to a series of rapid-fire questions, including consistent practicing, his most memorable performances, favorite practice room tools, and book recommendation! (44:10)   MORE ON BRIAN LEWIS: One of the most versatile violinists on the current scene, Brian Lewis is an exceptionally gifted and charismatic artist. "There are a lot of fine violinists on the concert stage today, but few can match Lewis for an honest virtuosity that supremely serves the music,” reports the Topeka Capital-Journal. Much sought after as a performer and teacher, Mr. Lewis concertizes and teaches around the globe, and is dedicated to growing the legacy of Shin'ichi Suzuki and Dorothy DeLay. Acclaimed performances include concerto debuts in both New York's Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, as well as performances with the Orchestra of St. Luke's, the Berlin (Germany), Louisiana, Kansas City, Hartford, Syracuse, Odense (Denmark), Lima (Peru), Boulder, Guadalajara (Mexico), Sinfonia Toronto (Canada), ROCO and American Symphony orchestras, among many others.   He has released six CDs, including as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra of music by Leonard Bernstein and Hollywood composer Michael McLean for the Delos Label. Mr. Lewis began his violin studies at the age of four, participating in the Ottawa Suzuki Strings program, and traveling to Japan twice to study with Dr. Suzuki. He received his Bachelor and Master degrees from The Juilliard School, studying with the renowned pedagogue, Dorothy DeLay. Mr. Lewis holds the David and Mary Winton Green Chair in String Performance and Pedagogy at The University of Texas at Austin. In addition, he is Artistic Director of the Starling-DeLay Symposium on Violin Studies at The Juilliard School in New York City, Artistic Director and Faculty and the Brian Lewis Young Artists Program held most recently in Fairbanks, AK. He has also recently held positions as the Class of '57 Visiting Professor of Music at Yale University and Visiting Professor at the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Hosted by fandom expert Lisa Crawford, Screen Culture was created for thoughtful discussions about the impact of premium filmed content on today's society. In this episode, Lisa is joined by David Craig, a media scholar, producer, and former network executive. He is Clinical Professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and Visiting Professor in the Institute of Cultural and Creative Industries at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

After 16 years, Germany is saying farewell to Angela Merkel, its longtime Chancellor. As Germans head to the polls on Sunday, the rest of Europe will also be watching closely to see who emerges as the next leader of Germany. Throughout her tenure, Chancellor Merkel has steered Germany and the European Union through a number of crises, from the euro-debt crisis to the migration crisis - both of which left their mark on the continent and on Greece specifically. Professor George Pagoulatos joins The Greek Current to discuss Angela Merkel's legacy on the European level and within Greece, what her departure means for Europe's position on the global stage, and look ahead at tomorrow's crucial elections in Germany. Professor George Pagoulatos is the Director General of ELIAMEP, the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy, is Professor of European Politics and Economy at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), and Visiting Professor at the College of Europe.You can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here: Germans Will Choose A New Government As Angela Merkel Steps Down As ChancellorCyprus says Turkey eyes island's control with 2-state dealPresident Anastasiades addresses the 76th UN General AssemblyElpidophoros clears up Turkish House incidentΜάθημα ιστορίας και πατριωτισμού από τον Πρόεδρο Αναστασιάδη στον κ.

If police are the problem, what's the solution? Tens of millions of people poured onto the streets for Black Lives Matter, bringing with them a wholly new idea of public safety, common security, and the delivery of justice, communicating that vision in the fiery vernacular of riot, rebellion, and protest. Geo Maher's new book, A World Without Police transcribes these new ideas—written in slogans and chants, over occupied bridges and hastily assembled barricades—into a compelling, must-read manifesto for police abolition. Compellingly argued and lyrically charged, A World Without Police offers concrete strategies for confronting and breaking police power, as a first step toward building community alternatives that make the police obsolete. Geo will be joined by Robin D.G. Kelley and Alex Vitale to pick up on these urgent themes and to examine the alternatives to Police and policing. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Order a Copy of A World Without Police: https://www.versobooks.com/books/3783-a-world-without-police --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speakers: Geo Maher has previously taught at Vassar College, San Quentin State Prison, and the Venezuelan School of Planning in Caracas.
