Gain an understanding of the basic ideas and interventions used in Paul Gilbert’s Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) as integrated into Dr. Henderson’s cognitive behavioral treatment for shyness and social anxiety disorder protocol called Social Fitness Training. CFT teaches clients ways to cultivate self-compassion and to mindfully develop healthier relationships with difficult emotions. Through experiential exercises, role-plays and didactic instruction, explore the roots of compassion in an evolutionary theory of attachment and emotion regulation, and learn how developing the compassionate mind can help individuals experience positive, affiliative emotions, face painful feelings and establish a secure base.
