This 8-session in-person Compassionate Mind Training programme is adapted from the groundbreaking work of internationally renowned psychologist and creator of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Professor Paul Gilbert. During the course, participants will learn: • how our minds are naturally susceptible to getting caught up in to negative thinking-emotion ‘loops’ • about the ‘three emotion systems’ model, and how many of us can get stuck in emotional imbalance • what compassion is, what attributes help to facilitate it, what can block it, and how we can train our minds in it • that compassion can come in three different ‘flows’ – to others (compassion for others), from others (compassion from others) and to ourselves (self-compassion) • practical skills to balance emotions through mindful compassion Each session is 2.5 hours long, including a 10 minute break for refreshments. Participants will be asked to do between-session skills practice, guided by audio files and written material that will be provided. To get the most from the course, all participants are expected to attend a minimum of 6 out of the 8 sessions. A certificate of attendance is awarded on this basis. A minimum number of participants is required for this course to run. A full refund or alternative day/time will be offered in the event that this scheduled course does not proceed.
