Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) is a form of cognitive-behavior therapy that draws upon evolution science, affective neuroscience, attachment therapy, and behaviorism in assisting individuals who suffer with emotional difficulties. Utilizing mindfulness, the purposeful cultivation of compassion, and a host of treatment strategies such as imagery, chair-work, breath-body work, and behavioral and thought experiments, CFT was developed to assist clients who struggle with issues of shame and self-criticism. Because it’s theoretical basis draws from multiple bodies of science, CFT can sometimes be challenging to grasp initially. In this two-day training, participants will learn a way to organize CFT into a set of layered processes and practices that will allow them to systematically understand, train, and begin to implement the practices of CFT. Additionally, participants will gain exposure to a number of core CFT techniques and will explore how to implement them through experiential practice.

This workshop is appropriate for mental health professionals, including Psychologists, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, and Psychiatric Nurse-Practitioners.
