Self-compassion might be the single most important skill for effectively dealing with difficult emotions. In fact, a lack of self-compassion is one of the strongest predictors for anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. This seminar will equip you with tools to build the capacity for self-compassion in your clients. We will explore the convergence between modern science and mindfulness practices that can be used to build self-compassion in the present, and can be applied to heal past trauma. You will be taught a thorough, yet accessible, orientation to cognitive science and neuroscience as they relate to mindfulness.
This seminar recording consists of highly engaging and experiential learning that will give you a firsthand experience of how these practices can build and sustain well-being. You will have an opportunity to practice guiding others and being guided through mindfulness and self-compassion exercises with the support of skilled supervision.
