The Art of Self-Compassion, Cincinnati, OH
This workshop by Dr. Neff is the second day of a two-day conference for mental health professionals being held from October 17-18, 2019. This six-hour training will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, participants gain practical skills of mindfulness and self-compassion. A lecture on the theory and research into self-compassion will be provided, and several informal self-compassion practices for use in daily life will be taught. The phenomena of backdraft – adverse reactions to self-compassion practice – will be discussed. Finally, participants will learn self-compassion practices designed to work with difficult emotions, motivate oneself from a place of kindness rather than criticism, combat caregiver fatigue, and cultivate self-appreciation.
