Mindfulness and self-compassion are natural counterparts. When combined with contemporary evidence-based therapy, these traditional teachings can powerfully address issues such as social isolation, depression, anxiety and chronic self-criticism. Loving kindness practices and compassionate mind development have been shown to be viable clinical approaches that engage people in overcoming these negative emotional states, and also supports individuals and communities for general well-being.
In this workshop, we will focus on practical methods for supporting the development of self-compassion to address a variety of psychological difficulties. There will be instruction, meditation and discussion on the applications of these tools in your clinical practice. A bibliography of relevant publications will also be provided.
