Dr. Kristin Neff
This workshop by Dr. Neff is being held on Friday October 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. This workshop follows a workshop by Rod Jeppsen on Thursday, October 17 for therapists on positive tools for change in psychotherapy. The workshop by Dr. Neff, however, is appropriate for professionals and laypeople alike.
