Live Webinar for a complete introduction to Compassion-Focused Therapy, highly effective, to transform mental health problems in clients.

About this event

This interactive live Webinar is a comprehensive introduction to Compassion-Focused Therapy (Compassion Mind Training) to strengthen clinical skills. This program teaches the underlying Compassion-Focused Therapy framework which includes essential practices in mindfulness and self-compassion to transform a wide range of mental issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, inner criticisms, blame and shame in your clients. The focus is on developing a personal practices as well as learning applications that can better assist our clients.

COMPASSION-FOCUSED THERAPY (CFT)(Paul Gilbert) is a compelling clinical approach to assist clients in dealing with a wide range of mental health problems. It is an empirically validated therapeutic intervention that calls on the more evolved human mental capacity of empathy and compassion to promote well being, resilience and better relationships.

Compassion-Focused Therapy, also called Compassion Mind Training, is highly effective for the treatment of a variety of psychological disorders. It is especially helpful with clients who are experiencing a high level of self-criticism and shame which is known to exacerbate and maintain depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, weight concerns, obsessive-compulsive disorders, chronic pain, hoarding and post-traumatic stress disorders.

Cultivating compassion and self-compassion increase the capacities to engage in a supportive relationship and to foster emotions of safeness, contentment, belonging and connection which are key to psychological healing. Many therapists have added Compassion-Focused Therapy to their clinical repertoire to facilitate greater transformation in themselves and their clients. Compassion-Focused Therapy can be integrated with a variety of approaches such as CBT, ACT, EMDR as well as many others.

All the sessions in this Webinar will be recorded so that you can view the sessions at a time that is convenient for you.
