Mindful Self-Compassion for professionals

Event number: 17324
32 CPD hours
Presenter(s): Marie Bloomfield

Give yourself the gift of Mindful Self-Compassion for a better personal and work life!

Compassion is the essence of Mindfulness and the bedrock of emotional healing.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an outstanding didactic and experiential new training workshop where you learn the powerful practices of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion from inside out: that is by applying Mindful Self-Compassion in your personal life, you can better use it in your professional work for more effective engagement and interventions.

In this training workshop you will be presented with new evidence-based strategies to manage stress, anxiety, depression, pain and other conditions but as well you will be introduced to new powerful micro self-care practices.  The aim of the workshops is two-fold: firstly, to enhance professional skills and secondly, to apply self-care practices so that at the end of the workshop you feel refreshed and revitalised.

The applications of mindfulness and self-compassion is revolutionalising mental health. Mindfulness allows to stand back, to see what is, to pause and choose again, in order to re-wire the brain. Self-Compassion is about being present with connection and warmth during times of pain and struggles. When we combine mindfulness and self-compassion, we increase the power of transformation by changing how we relate to ourselves and our difficulties in a most profound way.

During the program you will be introduced to over 30 practical strategies and simple tools to promote emotional strength, resilience, flexibility, acceptance and positive motivation that you can practice in your daily life and teach your clients. MSC is learning to ease difficult emotions, care for others compassionately and be more fully ourselves in our roles.

Participation in this program has been extraordinary; thousands of health professionals have attended similar workshops in America and Europe since 2013. MSC was developed by Christopher K. Germer, leader in the integration of compassion and psychotherapy and Kristin Neff, pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion. In this one program, they have successfully integrated concepts and practices from Mindfulness(MBSR, MBCT, DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy(ACT), Compassionate mind training + Compassion-Focused Therapy(CFT) and Cognitive Therapy(CBT) as well as Positive Psychology.

Rapidly expanding research shows that mindfulness and self-compassion are strongly associated with emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety, depression and pain as well as better healthy habits such as diet and exercise, more satisfying personal relationships and enhanced self-care.

 At the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  •     Practice mindfulness and self-compassion in daily life
  •     Understand the science of self-compassion and well-being
  •     Handle difficult emotions with greater ease, acceptance and resilience
  •     Motivate yourself with understanding and kindness rather than harsh criticism
  •     Transform challenging relationships, old and new
  •      Manage compassion fatigue
  •      Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
  •      Teach simple mindfulness and self-compassion practices to clients, patients and  students

Mindful Self-Compassion is an experiential journey, an adventure in self-discovery and self-kindness, supported by a very beautiful venue.

This program fulfils one of the prerequisite for becoming a Mindful Self-Compassion teacher.
