Self-compassion is explained as a critical component of mindfulness practice that is sometimes disregarded in the mental health sector.
Self-compassion may be the single most crucial ability for dealing with tough emotions effectively. In fact, one of the biggest indicators of anxiety, sadness, and other mental health disorders is a lack of self-compassion. This course will provide you with strategies to help your clients develop the capacity for self-compassion. We will investigate the intersection of contemporary science and mindfulness techniques that may be utilized to cultivate self-compassion in the present and heal past trauma. You will be given a detailed, yet approachable, introduction to cognitive science and neuroscience as they apply to mindfulness.
This lecture tape contains highly interesting and immersive learning that will provide you with personal knowledge of how these practices may help you establish and sustain well-being. With the assistance of competent supervision, you will have the chance to practice guiding others and being guided through mindfulness and self-compassion activities. Take home the Toolbox for Teaching Mindfulness and the Toolbox for Teaching Self-Compassion, so you can apply what you’ve learned right now in your work with clients.
