A standard definition of compassion is “a sensitivity to suffering in self and others with a commitment to try and alleviate and prevent it”.

Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) aims to help promote mental and emotional healing by encouraging people in treatment to be compassionate toward themselves and other people. Compassion both toward the self and toward others, is an emotional response believed by many to be an essential aspect of well-being.
