Compassion Focused Therapy provides an important new perspective on the therapeutic process. Of course therapists endeavour to be compassionate towards their patients, but compassion focused therapy is more about teaching patients to be compassionate towards themselves. This involves the therapist understanding the tug of war that takes place between the different systems and sections of the brain; understanding that everybody has competing fears, fantasies, ambitions, rules for how they should be, and so on. Such an understanding of what takes place in the brain enables people to take a more compassionate view of how they think, feel and behave as different times, and to move forward to overcome specific problems, whether this problems are of depression, anxiety, irritability, impulsiveness, or any other. Therefore what this course does is threefold: (A) it teaches the understanding of what happens in the brain, so that people can treat themselves with more constructive compassion, (B) it highlights techniques that therapists may already be familiar with, which chime with compassion focused thinking, and (C) it teaches further techniques the therapist can use to be in line with this approach. The APT has mastered the delivery of CFT training 'online anytime'; providing top class training you can access right now or any time that suits you. No longer do you have to wait for 'the start date' of the course. "I really enjoyed the course and feel that I have learnt a lot and feel enthusiastic about using my newly acquired skills within my practice." Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) training from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), includes APT accreditation, certification, and resources. And the APT has perfected the art of delivering it in a way that makes it appear simple and easy to apply. "Great training, really interesting and well structured." With a wealth of clinical experience, Dr William Davies presents the course with relevant stories and examples of using CFT and an engaging lightness which perfectly complements the radical nature of the therapy.   "I am delighted by this course. Dr Davies and his dry wit have been wonderful companions. Will buy and undertake others." This course gives you a thorough introduction to CFT, it is APT-accredited, and gives you access to important resources for you to use post-course. Whether you simply want to broaden your knowledge or become a committed CFT practitioner, this course is for you.
