Date: March 4, 2022

Location: ONLINE

Teaching times:

Start: 9.30 a.m.

Finish: 4.30 p.m.

This one day experiential workshop will explore the concepts and theory of Compassion Focused Staff Support through the lens of personal practice. Participants will have the opportunity to experience CFSS from the inside out with a mixture of individual and group based experiential practices designed to develop awareness in and cultivate capacity in compassion. 

Compassion Focused Therapy is a motivational and integrative approach to working with shame and self-criticism, manifest in a broad range of psychological and emotional difficulty. As a model of human suffering and wellbeing, CFT is now being used in a wide range of clinical settings, from primary care to secure forensic services. This workshop will cover working across the spectrum of complexity and setting, but with a particular focus on working with complex attachment and relational difficulties.
