What is Compassion Focused Therapy? Background and Practical Tips

Presenter: James Kirby

Compassion is often misunderstood as being soft and an indulgence, even selfish. In this presentation on Compassion, James will be reviewing what compassion is, and how being compassionate can help with the difficulties of life. He will discuss a specific type of therapy called “Compassion Focused Therapy”, which was developed to directly target self-criticism and shame that many individuals can struggle with at times.

Presenter: James is a Clinical Psychologist and Lecturer at School of Psychology at the University of Queensland. He is also the Co-Director of the Compassionate Mind Research Group at the University of Queensland. He has broad research interests in compassion, however, specifically he examines compassion focused therapy and evaluates compassionate mind training interventions.

James also holds a Visiting Fellowship at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed articles and chapters. He also continues his work as a clinical psychologist in private practice.
