This workshop is designed for clinicians familiar with Compassion Focused Therapy, and are interested in using Compassion Focused Therapy for eating disorders, including people with binge eating / compulsive eating difficulties.  This workshop will remind clinicians of the principles, philosophy and techniques of Compassion Focused Therapy CFT, how these can be modified and applied to help people recover from an eating disorder.  It will outline how these principles are applied from assessment to intervention.  Participants will have an opportunity to practice identifying shame and self-criticism and developing formulation skills within a “Three Circles” model of affect regulation.  We will explore how shame and pride can be addressed during therapy, how to developing a client’s capacity for managing the biological, psychological and social challenges of recovery and to practice key CFT-E therapeutic techniques, including imagery and two chair work. We will also explore how the principles of group based CFT-E can be applied to the participants’ work setting and client population.

The workshop consists of didactic teaching, role plays and the practise of key CFT techniques (such as imagery and breathing exercises).  It is aimed at health professionals who are working, or want to work, therapeutically with people with an eating disorder.
