How Compassion Focused Approaches can help with Mental Health
James is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland, and will be presenting in the Mood Disorders Centre
|A Mood Disorders Centre seminar|
|Date||5 October 2022|
|Time||15:30 to 17:00|
|Place||The Sir Henry Wellcome Building for Mood Disorders Research|
In this talk I’ll present an overview of my work evaluating compassion focused approaches to help with mental health.
Specifically, I’ll introduce one key model, compassion focused therapy (CFT). I will then present a range of research that has examined CFT using self-report and physiological measures (using heart rate variability), including those with body weight shame and veterans with PTSD, as well as evaluations of a brief 2-hour CMT seminar with self-critical parents and a digital online intervention for those with workplace injuries wanting to return to work.
