Open to Division of Forensic Psychology (DFP) Members Only.

This workshop provides an overview of the key components of the Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) model. CFT is a transdiagnostic therapeutic model. It is rooted in an evolutionary psychology framework and incorporates both attachment theory and neurobiology. CFT was developed to help those who experience high levels of shame and self-criticism. It is widely used with different mental health populations to help reduce and alleviate suffering and distress. Research has shown that CFT is effective in increasing compassion and creating positive change in mental health. 

Those attending the workshop will be provided with:

  • An introduction to the key concepts of the compassion-focused therapy model.
  • Opportunities to engage safely in experiential exercises to illustrate compassionate practices. 
  • Additional materials to take home to develop skills in compassion.
