The 2020 Lighthouse Week!
In 2020, we are reintroducing the cbttraining Lighthouse Week. Since the first Lighthouse Week in 2010, we have held a week’s Lighthouse training in August, which is dedicated to:
- Leading edge developments in therapy and therapist training
- Focus on a key theme (in 2020, experiential training in Compassion Focused Therapy)
- Building relationships amongst the community of practitioners during our week together
In 2020, the key themes of the Lighthouse Week are: Compassion Focused Therapy, Self-practice/self-reflection training, and Chairwork. These are all featured in James and Tobyn’s latest writings:
Bell, T., Montague, J., Elander, J. & Gilbert, P. (in press): “A definite feel‐it moment”: Embodiment, externalisation and emotion during chair‐work in compassion‐focused therapy. Counselling & Psychotherapy Research.
Bennett-Levy, J. & Haarhoff, B. (2019). Why therapists need to take a good look at themselves: Self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR) as an integrative training strategy for evidence-based practices. In Dimidjian, S. (ed.) Evidence-based practice in action: Bridging clinical science and intervention (pp. 380-394). Guilford, New York.

Although the Lighthouse Week workshops can be taken individually (1 day, 2 day, 2 day), we encourage participants, if they can, to do the full week. To this end, we plan to reserve 50% of places for the 5-day Lighthouse Week participants.
The Lighthouse Week workshops are:
10 Aug: The Underpinnings of Compassion Focused Therapy (1 day)
11-12 Aug: Experiencing Compassion Focused Therapy for Ourselves: A Self-practice/self-reflection Workshop
13-14 Aug: Honing our [Compassion Focused] Therapy skills with Chairwork
Do give the Lighthouse Week full consideration – we know that therapy folk find combination of contemporary training and a week in Byron is pretty damn good way to learn and relax! And there is a considerable price discount for booking the full week.
And if you can’t make the Lighthouse Week, you might consider the 5-day Mindful Self-compassion Intensive. That week has many of the same qualities.
