Whether you’re a counselor, teacher, or social worker, serving children is hard. You’re taking care of everyone, and often feel exhausted. This series of 12 self-compassion sessions teach you how to care for yourself in the moment that you most need it. Research has shown that those who are more self-compassionate experience less stress, anxiety, and depression, are more resilient, and better able to deal with emotional challenges. Drawn from the internationally-acclaimed Mindful Self-Compassion program, which was created by Dr. Kristin Neff (educational psychologist at University of Texas, Austin) and Dr. Chris Germer, (clinical psychologist, Harvard University), the sessions will be comprised of didactic presentations, guided practices, and discussions which will offer specific tools that you can use to give yourself the support you deserve.
