About this event

This workshop introduces the basic ideas and interventions used in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). Participants will learn the evolutionary model, the nature of our three basic emotions regulation systems and how to apply to case formulation.

There will also be a focus on the forms and functions of shame and self-criticism, and how they can be treated by developing self and other directed compassion. CFT aims to develop care and affiliative-focused motivation, attention, emotion, behaviour and thinking.
