Compassion @ Byron 2015

The 2015 cbttraining program is arguably our most exciting yet. We are bringing world leaders in compassion-focused approaches to therapy and wellbeing to Byron Bay.

Mindful Self-Compassion Program

In late April, Kristy Arbon and James Bennett-Levy lead the Neff/Germer evidence-based 5 day Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program. Kristy and James’ workshop was full last year and the feedback was outstanding: “A whole week on myself!” “Felt blessed and grateful” “What a great week! Thank you. Like taking a hot bath :-).” (Click here for further feedback from 2014 participants).

MSC is a self-experiential program. We’d recommend MSC for participants who want to really ‘get compassion from the inside out’, and are looking to develop their ‘compassionate self’ as people and/or therapists. MSC is also particularly appropriate for leaders/facilitators looking to work with groups in community settings (MSC can be conceived as the compassion-equivalent of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction).

Compassion-Focused Therapy

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.

ACT with Compassion

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 three 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!

Online CBT Programs

Lastly, we are still offering at reduced prices Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre’s top rated online CBT program for people who already have some background, and PRAXIS online training for those new to CBT.
