12 CPD hours of professional development for health practitioners

(Early bird before 25 Feb $500; Full price $590)

NOTE: This workshop is most suitable for health practitioners trained in and practicing CFT

There are many sources of difficulty that can produce complexity in psychotherapy. These range from difficulties such as psychosis and bipolar disorders through to complex trauma-based difficulties. One of the sources for complexity are fears, blocks and resistances to compassion motivation and affect. This workshop will look at some of the origins of fears blocks and resistances in relationship to experiential avoidance, passive aggression, and unprocessed attachment emotions such as anger and grief. In addition we will explore the impact of complexity on the mind of the therapist.


These workshops provide a great opportunity to learn from the founder Prof Paul Gilbert, who has travelled from the UK to provide this training opportunity in Brisbane with Dr James Kirby. CFT is an innovative therapy which has become increasingly popular amongst a range of health professionals.  CFT was originally developed for clients with high-levels of self-criticism and shame and has a growing evidence-base for a variety of clinical disorders and presentations, including with depression, anxiety, as well as complex trauma, PTSD, and psychosis. Practicing compassion has been shown to have powerful effects on physiological, psychological and social processes.
