This is a Time of Suffering: Comforting Ourselves through Self-Compassion

ID: 4183WEB

There is no denying that this time in our history is one of the most stressful in our lifetime. Prolonged exposure to stress is scientifically proven to be detrimental to our physical and emotional health. It is more important now than ever to understand the power of self-acceptance and self-compassion in buffering the stress response and the psychological and physiological impact it has on our health. Neuroscientists have proven that critical self-talk is perceived by the brain as a threat to our survival and generates a similar stress response to an external traumatic event. These webinars will allow participants to assess their own level of self-compassion. This webinar will discuss the definition and elements of self-compassion, the stages of self-compassion and obstacles to self-compassion. Also, this will is primarily experiential and will introduce participants to a variety of self-compassion exercises that they can easily practice themselves or teach to their clients.
