About the workshop:

This workshop will introduce participants to the basic ideas and interventions used in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).

CFT was originally developed with people with high shame and self-criticism. These individuals often come from difficult backgrounds where there are low levels of affiliation and affection. This is problematic because from infancy onwards attachment and affiliative experiences play a major role in brain development and regulation of threat-based emotion. Indeed, individuals from these backgrounds can find experiencing positive, affiliative emotions (accepting compassion and being self-compassionate) difficult. This workshop will explore the role of the evolution of mammalian attachment and affiliation in threat regulation with a focus on the complexity of threat processing systems and its regulation through affiliative processing. This workshop will be led by the founder of CFT, Professor Paul Gilbert.
