GP Webinar | Compassion for GPs

St Patrick's Mental Health Services (SPMHS) invites GPs and healthcare professionals to a free webinar on compassion-focused therapy.

The second event in our 2022 GP Webinar Series, Compassion-Focused Therapy: An Introduction, takes place from 7.30pm on Tuesday, 26 April. 

You can register for this free webinar here.

Marion Mernagh and Sinéad Ní Chaolain, clinical psychologists on our team, explore what compassion-focused therapy is, who it is aimed at, and what its core therapeutic elements are.

By attending, you will examine the key concepts and principles within compassion-focused therapy, and learn about why compassion is important from a mental health perspective. The speakers will also discuss the ‘Three Systems’ model of emotion regulation, and how you might apply this model to your own work as healthcare practitioners, as well as to the needs of your patients.

There will be a short question and answer session where you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers. You can also submit your questions in advance by emailing
