Mindful Self-Compassion Core Skills: Online with Greater Good
February 16, 2021 - February 26, 2021
This online workshop is taught by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer, in conjunction with the Greater Good Science Center. Participants will be taught over four days (in three hour sessions) online via zoom. Feb. 16, 19, 23 and 26, 9am-12pm Pacific time. You will learn the core skills of the MSC training, which is designed to cultivate self-compassion using meditation, daily life practices, lecture, group exercises and discussion. You will be provided with essential tools for treating yourself in a kind, compassionate way whenever you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. This workshop is relevant for the general public as well as practicing mental health professionals.
Unique to this training, participants will also be able to participate in small group sessions, including Self-Compassion Mentoring and Affinity Groups, to more deeply explore course content.
Self-Compassion Mentoring: Engage with highly trained and experienced mentors for on-the-spot learning and application of self-compassion skills and teachings. Optimize learning by attending additional interactive practice sessions between the four half-day training sessions.
Affinity Groups: Join a group of Core Skills training participants who self-identify with a particular social-cultural identity. Participants from underrepresented populations will have an opportunity to create community and discuss the course experiences and learning with others like them.
