Compassion Focused Therapy - for Voice Hearing & other related perceptual experiences

This event has passed!

Voices and other perceptual experiences are common to many different mental health conditions (such as psychosis, PTSD, anxiety, anorexia, personality disorders, and mood disorders) and also occur in people who report no mental health conditions at all.

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) uses compassionate mind training to help develop and work with experiences of inner warmth, safeness and soothing via compassion and self compassion. For clinicians, mental health practitioners and the mental health workforce, you will learn to apply this model to support clients who experience distress associated with hearing voices and other perceptual experiences.
