The Psychology of Compassion and Transformation Professional Training Series

The team at the Ottawa River Psychology Group met last June 2019 and set an intention to build community around evidence-driven psychology practices that integrate compassion and the therapeutic relationship for personal transformation. We brainstormed about our favourite psychotherapy researchers and trainers then sent out invitations across the continent. We are super excited about building professional community in Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindful Self Compassion and process-based CBT.

Here are our professional training offerings for 2020. We hope you will join us at one or all of them. You can also register online through our Courses tab on our web page or call our office at 613-656-3331.

May all beings be held in compassion…
