​Compassion Focused Therapy for Grief and Loss with Dr. Darcy Harris

The event is expired

Grief and Loss

An exclusive professional development opportunity; Dr. Darcy Harris’ training on Compassion Focused Therapy for Grief and Loss is not to be missed.

This training will be held as a series of four separate webinars, each four hours in length. The focus of this series will be to develop a greater depth in understanding current research, theory, and practice related to grief, applying the underlying principles of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) as the primary approach to working with individuals who are grieving.

Level: Beginner

Knowledge of CFT is helpful, but not essential. 


Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) is of specific interest in situations of loss, grief, and bereavement due to the intensity of the work and the need to provide clients with a secure base from which they can begin the process of rebuilding their lives after a significant loss. Compassion-based approaches are especially useful for loss experiences that have a protracted course, where individuals must live with ongoing loss and grief over a long time, and where there is no foreseeable end. These approaches are also very helpful to address grief that is accompanied by shame, disenfranchisement, and exhaustion.

The sessions will explore how the CFT model can provide clients with a way to attend to their grief so that the adaptive and healing aspects of the grieving process can unfold.
