Event description

Description

Participants of this 8-week workshop will learn the core skills of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training, an empirically-supported program designed to cultivate self-compassion using meditation, daily life practices, lecture, group exercises and discussion. Self-compassion is an emotional skill that can be learned by anyone.

Recent research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help you stick to your diet and exercise routine. This workshop will provide essential tools for learning and practice for treating yourself in a respectful, compassionate way for use when you feel as though you are having a difficult time, suffering, or feel inadequate.

It is expected participants build up 30-minute personal daily practice of both formal and informal meditation and practices to get maximum benefit. This 8-week workshop, if all sessions are attended, is worth 16 PD points for health professionals

At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • describe the theory and research supporting mindful self-compassion
  • motivate themselves with encouragement rather than self-criticism
  • relate to difficult emotions with greater moment-to-moment acceptance
  • respond to feelings of failure or inadequacy with self-kindness
  • begin to transform difficult relationships, old and new, through self-validation
  • practice the art of savouring and self-appreciation
  • integrate core mindfulness and self-compassion exercises into daily life
  • teach simple self-compassion practices to patients, students, or clients

This is also the core foundational program to undertake if you wish to become a trainer in this program – this is the first stage of the process to do so.

By booking for Session One at 6.30pm on Wed 9 October we will automatically register you for all 8 sessions.

If you are a low income earner, are eligible for a mental health care plan, or have any other questions about the program or cost please contact John: 0439 901 795
