Welcome to the Compassionate Parenting course 

In this course, we will guide you through some ideas and exercises that are based on the evidence-based approach called Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). The course is primarily aimed at you, as the parent, however some activities are designed for you to do with your child.

There are 7 video sessions (see course content below), along with additional resources such as MP3 audios and downloadable/printable handouts to support you on your journey of compassionate parenting. When you are ready to start, click on the Introduction below.
