Mindful Self Compassion
Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported, 8-week training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Dr. Christopher Germer, MSC teaches core principles and practices that support participants in responding to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, strength, care, and understanding.
Unsure about "self-compassion"? I was too. But for most of us, the practice is much different than we imagine. If you're curious, I'd invite you to click below to learn more.
Self-Compassion Training for Healthcare Communities
Self-Compassion for Healthcare Communities (SCHC) is a 6-week evidence-based healthcare adaptation of Mindful Self-Compassion, the empirically supported program of Dr. Kristin Neff at UT Austin and Dr. Chris Germer at Harvard Medical School.
Research conducted in 2019 suggests that the 6-week SCHC program leads to a reduction in stress, depression, secondary traumatic stress and burnout, and an increase in compassion, mindfulness, and job satisfaction in healthcare professionals.
Contrary to what we might imagine, the practice of self-compassion can support us in caring for others. In fact, it's essential. I invite you to click below to learn more about bringing this course to your healthcare setting.
Biofeedback is a process that helps people learn how their minds and bodies work together, and how to influence and respond to physiological activity - such as heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature - to support their well-being.
When combined with an approach of mindfulness and self-compassion, biofeedback can be a powerful tool for learning to relate to the body as an ally rather than an enemy; as a resource, a source of vitality, information, and connection to what matters most.
