Luana Coloma Cook, Psy.D., and Sean Cook, Psy. D.,
An Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion for Mental Health Professionals
Description of the workshop:
This presentation will draw from the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program developed by Kristin Neff, Ph.D., and Christopher Germer, Ph.D. Both presenters are Trained MSC teachers. Over the past decade an increasingly large body of research by Neff and others has linked self-compassion to trauma resiliency, body satisfaction and appreciation, healthy aging, decreased depression, decreased anxiety, increased relationship satisfaction, and maintenance of health-related behaviors like diet and exercise. This presentation will offer an introduction to self-compassion practices, as well as an exploration of caregiver fatigue and the role that self-compassion can play in preventing burnout. Opportunities for an experiential learning will be provided. There will be one brief writing exercise so participants need paper and pen.
Behavioral Learning Objectives:
1. Identify the three components of self-compassion to use in caregiving by the therapist and to teach to clients.
2. Give examples of common misgivings with self-compassion and explain the misconceptions that underlie these misgivings for use by both the therapist and client.
3. Utilize a simple self-compassion practice.
4. Summarize the difference between empathy and compassion and recognize the role of self-compassion in preventing caregiving fatigue.
