Session Description: Compassion Focused Therapy was pioneered by Professor Paul Gilbert initially to work with people with high levels of shame and self-criticism. Over the past decades the CFT principles have been applied to a broad range of settings and has helped create systemic change.
In this webinar I will give you an overview of the core theoretical concepts of Compassion Focused Therapy and invite you to learn some of these concepts from the ‘inside out’; experiential learning and reflection is a key aspect of the model. You will become familiar with the concepts of our ‘tricky brain’, the loops in our mind, and the three systems model to help us understand our emotions. The model is likely to help you develop a helpful perspective to yourself and your work, and you will be able to take something from this session that you can weave into your existing practice.
I have used this model in my work with military veterans and asylum seekers as well as at an organizational level. It is an incredibly helpful approach to understanding ourselves, the systems we are in, and what we can do to cultivate a compassionate mind and society.
