The emerging science and practice of Compassion Focused Therapy in Psychosis (CFT), with its roots in evolutionary psychology, attachment theory, and neuroscience, offers a useful framework for supporting individuals experiencing psychosis, including distressing voices and extreme beliefs. This model also centers the experience of the provider and encourages individuals to develop their own compassion focused skills for self-care.
