Self-compassion is an important inner resource that increases resilience during challenging and difficult times. It involves the capacity to comfort and soothe ourselves, and to motivate ourselves with encouragement when we struggle, fail, or feel inadequate. Burgeoning research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, better coping, healthy habits, more satisfying relationships, and lower levels of anxiety and depression. Developing this resource is especially important now, as people are growing weary after months of dealing with changes, uncertainty and losses related to the pandemic.
Many helping professionals have been introduced to the concept of self-compassion, but they may not have been taught how to explicitly integrate this knowledge into clinical practice. Self-compassion can be integrated into clinical work by (1) how clinicians relate to themselves (compassionate presence), (2) how clinicians relate to their clients (compassionate relationship), and (3) how clients relate to themselves (home practice).
In addition to helping clients increase resilience, self-compassion is a powerful resource for clinicians. It enables clinicians to maintain emotional balance in the midst of challenging clinical work, to enjoy their work and their clients more fully, to be fully present and attuned with their clients, and to prevent caregiver fatigue.
This two-part interactive workshop will offer clinicians core skills and practices to cultivate self-compassion as a foundation for therapeutic relationships, self-care and to teach to clients.
Who Should Attend?
Helping professionals who have already been introduced to the practice of mindful self-compassion and the research to support it**, either through attending one of Kristin Neff's self-compassion workshops, attending a mindful self-compassion (MSC) group or training, or equivalent.
