The foundation of CFT is the belief that developing compassion for oneself and others can result in emotional healing and well-being. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, evolutionary psychology, and Buddhist psychology all serve as the foundation for CFT. It places a focus on cultivating self-compassion, which is characterized as treating oneself with the same kind and consideration that one would give a close friend. Additionally, CFT teaches people how to be compassionate toward others, which can enhance interpersonal interactions and increase a person’s feeling of purpose and connection.
