About the workshop

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like
we would a good friend we cared about. Rather than
continually judging and evaluating ourselves, self-
compassion involves generating kindness toward ourselves
as imperfect humans, and learning to be present with the
inevitable struggles of life with greater ease.
Through discussion, meditation, and experiential
exercises, you will gain practical skills for responding in a
kind, compassionate way whenever you are experiencing
painful emotions.
Dr. Kristin Neff, Ph. D.
Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture
at the University of Texas at Austin, researcher, and author.
A pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, she
conducted the first empirical studies on the subject over
a decade ago, and co-created an 8-week training course
in self-compassion with Dr. Chris Germer.


Who should attend?
This workshop is open to all, and will be of interest
to all health and human service providers, as well
as the general public.
