Compassion Focused Therapy, as the name suggests, involves the use of approaches intended to bolster self-compassion. One aspect of the approach which is particularly helpful is their openness regarding materials: the Compassionate Mind Foundation makes a lot of useful material available for free on their website. Some particularly interesting documents are linked-to here, but it is well worth visiting the site directly. Materials include training manuals, exercises, and helpful research information.
There is an excellent series of videos on the Compassionate Mind Founation website of a one-day workshop by Paul Gilbert
