About the event

The high levels of social isolation that adolescents have been experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic leaves them stuck in their heads with punishing self-critical thoughts. The pandemic also affected their developmental potential of self-discovery and personal growth. Anxiety, depression, and suicide rates have also skyrocketed.

The call for compassion for adolescents is LOUD.

We can respond by teaching teens compassionate mind skills. Compassionate mind training helps teens build the resilience to manage great distress in this pandemic era. We will work experientially in this to learn practical CFT interventions and how to apply them virtually and in person. We will emphasize CFT chair work as a powerful tool for cultivating self compassion, defusion, perspective taking and dealing with the challenging parts of ourselves.

Adolescence is the developmental period for self-discovery and personal exploration. However, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to severely impact this development.

Chris Fraser has over 25 years of experience and training in Family Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). CFT is a form of contextual behaviour science therapy that utilises compassion as a therapeutic tool.

Chris will introduce participants to CFT for adolescents in the current pandemic context and will be using experiential exercises in the workshop.

This workshop is suitable for parents who are struggling with communicating or interacting meaningfully with their child(ren).
