Introduction to CFT – London and Online

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), is a research-based therapy founded on a combination of principles from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Evolutionary Psychology and Attachment Theory. It was developed to work specifically with clients who had high levels of shame and self-criticism and who had had early experiences of poor attachment, affiliation and affection. By developing care and affiliative focused motivation, attention, emotion, behaviour and thinking CFT begins to address these problems. Over the two days delegates will be introduced to the fundamental principles of CFT along with its research and theoretical base. Practical skills within CFT will also be demonstrated with associated practice opportunities for delegates and will be accompanied by filmed examples. This two-day practical course covers: The Origins of CFT Psychoeducation – evolutionary psychology, the ‘tricky brain’, & the affect regulation model Shame and self-criticism – how it’s understood and worked with from the CFT perspective Compassion – definition, qualities & origin Developing skills – attention, mindfulness, imagery, compassion Putting compassion to work
