Inseus Online Mindful Self-Compassion Short Course
September 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - October 13, 2022 @ 7:15 pm UTC+0
MINDFULNESS + SELF-COMPASSION = EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE
This Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) is a 6-week live, online adaptation of the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program, designed to support the cultivation of self-compassion. Join us to start building your own self-compassion toolkit to thrive in today’s challenging environment!
This Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) is a highly experiential program that will teach you how to care for yourself with understanding and support when you need it most—when you fail, feel inadequate, or are suffering. The SC-MSC program builds the skills of mindfulness and develops the resource of self-compassion to enhance your capacity for emotional resilience. Research has shown that these techniques can help improve emotional well-being and the ability to cope with life’s challenges, lead to lower levels of anxiety and depression, and increase relationship and life satisfaction. Self-compassion is an inner strength that enables us to be more fully human and more fully ourselves.
SC-MSC was developed by Kristin Neff, PhD, the pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion, and Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness, compassion, and psychotherapy.
In this course you’ll learn:
–how to stop being so hard on yourself
–how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
–how to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
–mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
–the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
Offered in a virtual classroom format, you will experience all the same benefits of an in-person training, including lectures, experiential exercises, and group discussions. Virtual classes deploy a simple technology platform to bring all participants together live, creating engagement, interaction, and community.
