2-day CFT Made Simple: A Layered-Process-and-Practice Approach to Understanding and Practicing Compassion-Focused Therapy with Leading US Trainer Dr Russell Kolts

Workshop Description:

Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) is a form of therapy that draws upon evolution science, affective neuroscience, attachment therapy, and contextual behavioral science in assisting individuals who suffer with emotional difficulties. Utilizing mindfulness, the purposeful cultivation of compassion, and a host of treatment strategies such as imagery, chair-work, breath-body work, and behavioral and thought experiments, CFT was developed to assist clients who struggle with issues of shame and self-criticism. Because it’s theoretical basis draws from multiple bodies of science, CFT can sometimes be challenging to grasp initially. In this two-day training, participants will learn a way to organize CFT into a set of layered processes and practices that will allow them to systematically understand, train, and begin to implement the practices of CFT. Additionally, participants will gain exposure to a number of core CFT techniques and will explore how to implement them through experiential practice.

2-day Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT) with Leading US Trainers Dr Kirk Stosahl & Dr Patricia Robinson

Workshop Description:

Clinicians in a wide variety of practice settings are being faced with the challenge of getting positive client outcomes within as few treatment sessions as possible. This two-day workshop will introduce participants to Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT), and develop specific clinical skills that can be applied in practice after the workshop. Participants will learn about the research pertaining to the clinical impact of brief interventions and rapid response in psychotherapy. We will describe the three “pillars” of psychological flexibility: Awareness, openness and engagement. We will also look at the “five facet” approach to conducting brief, life changing present moment awareness interventions The majority of the workshop will be devoted to demonstrating and practicing specific clinical techniques that make up the FACT approach: Creating expectancies for rapid change, focused change oriented interviewing skills, method for rapid case formulation, using problem summary statements to “reframe” the presenting problem, how to “pillar dance” during clinical interactions, and core behavior change techniques such as the Bulls Eye, and Life Path exercises. We will also examine the application of FACT in groups and classes. Teaching methods will involve a combination of didactic lectures, experiential exercises, live clinical demonstrations, guided dyadic skills training and video demonstrations.
