Training Objectives

This 1-day training is designed for family members and peers who are interested in learning about Compassion Focused Therapy for psychosis. Learn how to apply this model to support someone with psychosis-related difficulties, and the developing evidence-base for this approach. It is open to everyone with or without prior training in Compassion Focused Therapy for psychosis.

Participants will learn:

  • how to help someone establish a bodily experience of safeness through direct CFT practices such as soothing rhythm breathing, mindfulness and imagery exercises.
  • how to support someone to develop a ‘compassionate self’, which is a self-identity that organizes the mind and provides a secure base (or grounding) for recovery.
  • how to encourage someone to use these compassionate qualities and skills to manage internal conflicts. This is achieved through techniques such as voice dialoguing, imagery, chair work, and letter writing.
  • about the current nature and level of evidence for the CFT approach and how this evidence-base may be developed.
