What is Compassion Focused Therapy?
Compassion focused therapy is rooted in an evolutionary model of human psychology. It provides an important new perspective on the therapeutic process. Of course therapists endeavor to be compassionate towards their patients, but compassion focused therapy is more about teaching patients to be compassionate towards themselves.
Participants on the course will be introduced to the difficulties that the human brain encounters because of its evolutionary history and the way in which old motivation and emotional systems interact with newly evolved cognitive competencies and intelligences. They will learn how early life experiences can shape the organisation of our emotions increasing our dispositions towards threat based emotions that underpin a lot of mental health difficulties. This course will focus on: understanding what happens in the brain so that people can treat themselves with more constructive compassion, it will highlight techniques that therapists may already be familiar with, which chime with compassion focused thinking, and it will teach further techniques the therapist can use to be in line with this approach.
