December Third Wave Grand Rounds: A Taste of CFT for Anger

Join us on Friday December 2, 2022 at 1pm.  No cost and open to all.

FREE ON-LINE WEBINAR:  A Taste of CFT for Anger with Russell Kolts, Ph.D., Director of the Inland Northwest Compassionate Mind Center in Spokane, Washington, USA.

This one-hour talk will introduce a number of the basic elements of Compassion- Focused Therapy (CFT), and why it’s a good fit for the treatment of anger. We’ll become acquainted with a functional definition of compassion, and introduce the 3-systems model of emotion and how they organize the mind. We’ll then explore an organizational model for the process of conducting CFT which includes both implicit and explicit ways that CFT therapists approach helping clients to soften shame and self-criticism and to approach and work compassionately with the sources of suffering in their lives.  Finally, we’ll touch on some dynamics of anger that make CFT a good fit for treating it, and highlight aspects of CFT that are particularly relevant for helping those who struggle with anger.
