Self-compassion is the art of caring for ourselves with the same kindness and understanding as we might care for a dear friend. Burgeoning research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing; reduced stress, anxiety and depression; maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise; and satisfying personal relationships.Fortunately, self-compassion can be learned by anyone.
Dr. Germer is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion and co-developer of the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)training program that has been taught to over 60,000 people. He will provide an overview of the theory and research on self-compassion and why self-compassion matters – why it is suddenly so popular throughout the world. He will also offer guidelines and simple skills for bringing self-compassion into our daily lives.
This lecture is open to the general public. Healthcare professionals and mindfulness practitioners will learn key principles and practices that can be integrated into their personal and professional lives.
