During this discussion of compassion focused therapy (CFT) for the treatment of OCD, we will explore how the science of self-compassion can be used to enhance both clinical work and personal recovery. Recent research demonstrates that compassion is a significant, active process in psychotherapy. This experiential workshop is specifically designed to help deepen our understanding and practice of compassion. Participants will learn the basics of imagery and psychotherapy techniques designed to generate the compassionate strength and psychological flexibility we need to face the challenge of living well with anxiety and intrusive thoughts.
