Description: Our well-being, and the well-being of those we care for, requires that we understand what we really need to be happy, and then we need to learn how to give that to ourselves. This is true for everybody, and it’s something we all struggle with. Luckily, research on the emerging field of Self-Compassion shows that we can learn to understand our own needs better, and we can learn to meet our own needs better. By understanding the causes of burnout, stress and emotional drain in our lives, and by learning simple and proven tools, we can increase our well-being, our emotional resiliency, and increase our ability to care for ourselves and others with joy and balance.
In this program you will learn what Self-Compassion is, you will hear a little about the research around it, and mostly, you will learn some simple and effective tools you can take home and begin using right away to help you care for yourself and others more effectively.
Self-Compassion is strongly associated with:
- Increased emotional well-being
- Reduction in Caregiver burnout
- Reduced anxiety, stress and depression
- Reduced self-criticism
- Increased self-kindness
- Increased motivation
- Maintenance of healthy habits
- More satisfying personal relationships
Note: This program will have an extra emphasis on helping us stay healthy while caring for others, whether we do that as parents, family caregivers, or professional.
