Compassion Focused Therapy

Compassion LogoCompassion 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.
