During this webinar, participants will explore how the science of compassion can be used to enhance and expand our clinical work, using a Compassion-Focused-ACT (CFACT) approach. Recent advances in psychological research, theory and practice have suggested that compassion is a significant, active process in psychotherapy effectiveness and personal growth. This webinar is specifically designed to help ACT and other behavior therapy practitioners deepen their understanding and practice of compassion focused psychotherapy. Participants will learn a new evolutionary model of compassionate flexibility, that is grounded in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), ACT, and elements of Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP). Direct, experiential exercises, including compassion focused imagery practices, will invite participants into contact with their compassionate minds.
Rather than being a soft option, the deliberate cultivation of compassion can strengthen even a state of the art, ACT approach. Participants will learn how cultivating compassion can undermine fusion with shame based self-criticism, help address the narrowing influence of threat based behavioral patterns, and how the experience of compassionate courage can help to mobilize us to move towards lives of greater meaning and vitality.
