Compassion lies at the heart of the therapeutic relationship, and helping to foster self-compassion in our clients is fundamental therapeutic goal. How do we work toward this goal in session? It starts with personal, experiential connection to this work. To give rise to compassion, you need to do compassion. In this intimate workshop, join Drs. Dennis Tirch and Laura Silberstein-Tirch to empower your psychotherapy by cultivating your inner wisdom, strength and commitment with mindful compassion.
This experiential workshop will integrate personal practice with clinical training, allowing you to directly experience process-focused therapy techniques you can use to foster compassion in your clients. Throughout the workshop, Dennis and Laura will guide you to directly experience mindfulness and compassion practices drawn from a synthesis of Buddhist approaches and Western psychotherapies, including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) . Over these two days, you’ll learn a step-by-step approach to cultivating your inner compassionate self and living your lives with deep purpose and courage. And you’ll learn how to facilitate this process of deep and meaningful change in your clients.
During the workshop, Dennis and Laura will explain how to situation these simple yet powerful personal practices into the conceptual framework of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). But, of course, these compassion practices are very consistent with and adaptable to any psychotherapy practice. Whatever your background and experience, this workshop will go directly to the heart of your work with clients and provide you with important skills and concepts for helping them. This training will give you a direct experience of how being compassionate towards yourself and others can transform your mind and life.
