Compassion-Focused Therapy - June 15-17

In June, we welcome Professor Paul Gilbert, the founder of Compassion-Focused Therapy. Paul and James will be presenting Paul’s only 3 day workshop in Australia, following his appearance at the Happiness and its Causes conference on a panel with the Dalai Lama.

This is a unique opportunity to learn from a founder of one of the major psychotherapies to have been developed in the last 15 years. For anyone interested in developing Compassion-Focused Therapy skills for working with clients with complex problems, this is a workshop not to be missed. Read more about it by clicking here.

The Power of Compassion: How to manage Stress by Cultivating your Compassionate Mind - June 19

Paul and James will also present this one-day workshop which introduces participants to the principles behind Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and provides opportunities for participants to practice different ways of harnessing and cultivating compassion for improving well-being.

ACT with Compassion - Oct 12-14

In October, we welcome back Dennis Tirch, who gave workshops in Byron with Paul in 2013, and has been writing some wonderful books on ACT, Compassion, CBT and Buddhist Psychology. Dennis will be training therapists in how to integrate Compassion-Focused Therapy with ACT strategies.

Dennis teaches all round the world. He’s a great guitar player as well as an inspiring trainer! You don’t have to be an ACT practitioner to come to this workshop. Read more about it by clicking here.

We strongly recommend early booking for all workshops. If you want to immerse yourself in compassion this year and do all three, email us and we’ll see what we can do about a special price!

CBT from the Inside Out - James’ New Book Now Available

CBT from the inside out

Experiencing CBT from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection Workbook for Therapists (Bennett-Levy, Thwaites, Haarhoff & Perry, 2015, Guilford Press) is a radical and refreshing self-experiential training book for therapists.

As Melanie Fennell has written: ‘‘This terrific book places direct personal experience of CBT right at the heart of the training process. Self Practice/self-reflection (SP/SR) has been an enduring passion for James Bennett-Levy and his international team of authors for more than 15 years, and this steady commitment shines through in the book’s integration of clearly explained theory, recourse to evidence, and lucidly designed and written practical modules.”

Experiencing CBT from the Inside Out is available from Footprint Books.
