The Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Core Skills Workshop offers participants the opportunity to learn key components of the full 8-week MSC course in 4 intensive 3-hour online sessions held over two weeks. MSC is a resource building program that teaches the skill of self-compassion, one of our greatest internal capacities for coping and resilience. MSC offers a way of responding to ourselves in the face of challenge or distress that can be both gentle and fierce, soothing and protective. With the skill of self-compassion we can bring a tender awareness to ourselves and our experience, learn to treat ourselves with greater kindness, and also remember our common humanity. With self-compassion we can learn to weather setbacks more easily and motivate ourselves to persevere and achieve our goals. There is a growing body of research suggesting that self-compassion is associated with many benefits including reduced anxiety and depression, increased resilience, improved sleep and immune system functioning, and overall well-being. *Continuing education credits are available as outlined below for an additional fee of $50.
