Want to learn to love yourself more?
Want to learn how to use Kristin’s pioneering work to help your clients have more care for themselves?
Kristin Neff, PhD, one of the world’s leaders in teaching self-compassion, will offer practical tools and tips to help you and your clients deepen self-love and compassion significantly!
Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we care about. It motivates us to make needed changes in our lives not because we’re worthless or inadequate, but because we care about ourselves and want to lessen our suffering. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions.
Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. Practices will also be introduced to help ease stress for caregivers. This course is open to the general public and also relevant for practicing mental health professionals.
Kristin Neff, PhD, received her doctorate in Human Development from the University of California at Berkeley in 1997. She is currently an Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. She is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion over a decade ago.
Kristin is the author of the acclaimed book Self-Compassion (William Morrow, 2011), a chronicle of her journey to self-love. She has also written numerous academic articles on the topic of self-compassion based on her research. 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 an eight-week program to help people learn to be more self-compassionate in daily life. Information on self-compassion – including videos, guided meditations, exercises, research articles, and a way to test your own self-compassion level – is available at www.self-compassion.org.
Kristin is also featured in the bestselling book and award-winning documentary The Horse Boy (www.horseboyworld.com), which chronicles her family’s journey to Mongolia where they trekked on horseback to find healing for her autistic son.
Come join us for an incredible day of self-love and learning the practical, scientific tools for developing greater self-compassion in yourself and your clients!
