Event description

Description

A free workshop for all who work in health and social care in the Thames Valley

Having compassion for yourself is no different from having compassion for others. Health and social care staff are sometimes described as having ‘compassion-fatigue’, often the result of stress and a lack of control of their workload or environment (see references below). Suffering, failure and imperfection are a shared human experience; do we make enough time and space to acknowledge this in ourselves?

Self-compassion is an inner strength that enables us to acknowledge our shortcomings, learn from them and make the necessary changes with an attitude of kindness and respect. With time, space and encouragement we can learn to care for ourselves and others with patience and love.

In this workshop we will learn about self-compassion research, explore our own experiences and reflect on our feelings, and share perspectives in small groups.
