Yotam Heineberg, PsyD, earned his doctorate at the PGSP-Stanford consortium at Palo Alto University. His research focused on the cycle of
violence, trauma, and aggression, which led him to seek out solutions to address these fundamental human problems through the vehicle of compassion. He went on to pursue post-doctoral training at Stanford’s Center for Compassion and Altruism, Research, and Education (CCARE) where he now serves as a Research Fellow. Yotam trained in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) with Professor Paul Gilbert, who developed the approach in the UK, and collaborates with the Compassionate Mind Foundation. As clinical faculty at Palo Alto University’s Gronowski Center, he offers supervision, clinical, and didactic trainings in CFT as well as other compassion-focused approaches to health and healing. His other professional interests entail developing relational, compassion-focused online interventions for both clinical and non-clinical populations.
