The Healing Power of Self-Compassion

From depression and anxiety to addiction and trauma, a lack of self-compassion is at the core of nearly every presenting problem. Luckily, neuroscience has demonstrated that, through practice, self-compassion is a skill that can regulate emotions, transform negative core beliefs and heal trauma. This highly interactive workshop brings together recent discoveries in neurobiology, cognitive science and psychotherapy outcome research to give you a wealth of information about new developments that have huge implications for restorative practice, including:

  • Learning how the brain’s compassion center, which neuroscientists call the “care circuit,” can be targeted and fortified using specific techniques;
  • Self-compassion practices that have been adopted specifically for different kinds of presenting problems, including trauma, depression and anxiety;
  • How you can use self-compassion practices to enhance your relationships with clients and make your work more enjoyable and deeply fulfilling.
