Self-Compassion

A Powerful Practice to Build Resilience and Perseverance

2 CE Credits

Self-Compassion is a pleasantly surprising pathway to
stress reduction and self-improvement.

Self-compassion is a caring and kind attitude towards oneself when facing adversity, including stressful life events and personal setbacks or failures. Research shows that self-compassion is associated with greater well-being, reduced stress, better coping, and greater motivation towards self-improvement. This course will focus on how self-compassion impacts resilience and perseverance; helping individuals bounce back from adversity and motivating themselves to stay focused on their goals. We will discuss studies demonstrating how self-compassion can be strengthened and explore self-compassion exercises to integrate into your practice.
