Workshop Description

For many years self-esteem was seen to be the key to psychological health.  However, research psychologists have identified several downsides to the endless pursuit of self-esteem such as ego-defensiveness, constant social comparisons and instability of self-worth. Research suggests that self-compassion is a healthier way of relating to oneself, offering all the benefits of self-esteem without its downsides. 

 

Learning Objectives 

  • Identify the three key components of self-compassion
  • Learn some of the core skills of the 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)program developed by Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer
  • Practice techniques to increase self-compassion in everyday life
  • Use self-compassion to alleviate caregiver burnout
  • Learn techniques that can be taught to clients to increase their self-compassion

The workshop is relevant for the general public as well as mindfulness teachers and mental health/helping professionals looking to learn more about the benefits of self-compassion.

 

Presenter 

Kristin Neff

Kristin Neff, Ph.D., is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion over a decade ago. 

Kristin’s work has received extensive media coverage, including the New York Times, MSNBC, National Public Radio, Reader’s Digest, and Psychology Today.  She offers workshops on self-compassion worldwide, and has developed (in partnership with Chris Germer) an eight-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program; an empirically supported and internationally recognized program designed to cultivate self-compassion. In 2016, Kristin also partnered with Brené Brown, Ph.D.,  to develop and co-facilitate an online course on Self-Compassion.

Kristin is also featured in the bestselling book and award-winning documentary The Horse Boy (now on Netflix in Canada!), which chronicles her family’s journey to Mongolia where they trekked on horseback to find healing for her autistic son.

Kristin is currently an Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to writing numerous academic articles on the topic, she is author of the book Self-Compassion, released by William Morrow in 2011.
