  • Techniques to help clients break through self-criticism, insecurity and depression
  • The fascinating convergence between modern science and mindfulness practice
  • Practices to re-energize your work and increase your effectiveness
  • Explanation of self-compassion as vital element of mindfulness practice that is often overlooked in the mental health field

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 cutting-edge 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.

The day consists of highly engaging and experiential learning that will give you a first-hand 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 expert supervision. Take home the Toolbox for Teaching Mindfulness and the Toolbox for Teaching Self-Compassion, allowing you to immediately incorporate what you have learned into your work with clients. The seminar’s focus on self-care for the clinician aims to have you leave the day feeling refreshed and reinvigorated.
