Description

Self-Compassion for Resilience, 4-Week Course, March 2018

Self-compassion includes the tools of kindness, mindfulness and acceptance. The focus of course will be developing these skills. When we are more self-compassionate we become better able to bounce back from life's challenges and experience greater well-being. We will draw on the work of Germer and Neff (Mindful Self-Compassion), Gilbert (Compassion-Based Therapy), mindfulness training and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).


A collaboration between Mindful Space and the Stress Resilience Partnership.
