The Science of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, Berkeley, CA

February 23, 2018 - February 24, 2018

Recently, there has been a surge of interest in the science and practice of self-compassion, particularly in clinical settings. But what is self-compassion, how does it relate to the practice of mindfulness, and how can it benefit yourself and your clients, patients, colleagues, and loved ones?

Kristin Neff, Ph.D., and Shauna Shapiro, Ph.D., internationally recognized experts on self-compassion and mindfulness, will spend two days exploring the unique and overlapping dimensions of these two mind states, with the goal of revealing hose to integrate both into our personal and professional lives.

Starting with the heart aspects of mindfulness--including cultivating a kind awareness of the present moment--the instructors will then move on to self-compassion, exploring why we find it so hard to give compassion to ourselves and how we can learn to treat ourselves as kindly as we would a loved one. Together, mindfulness and self-compassion can create a state of connected presence during difficult moments in our lives.

Neff and Shapiro will also present theory and research on mindfulness, compassion, and self-compassion—all shown to be powerfully associated with psychological and physical well-being--examining their roles in caregiving settings.

This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals. 10 CE hours available for health professionals.
