Additional Information

Registration is from 9.30am on Day 1, 9am on Days 2 & 3. Lunch and refreshments will be provided, as will a workbook and CPD certificate.

Please note: This workshop is for training therapists and is not designed to provide therapy to participants. All participants should have completed a CFT introductory training workshop.

This workshop is more experiential and practice based then the introduction and therefore participants will be required to engage in therapist-client role-plays where they will practice the specific skills of the specific interventions. Participants should be prepared to provide some proof of prior compassion focused training and practice (preferably attendance of a 2 or 3 day Introductory workshop).
