Description

CFT Made Simple: An Introduction to Compassion-Focused Therapy

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.
