Kristin Neff: The Power of SELF-COMPASSION

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we cared about. Rather than continually judging and evaluating ourselves, self-compassion involves generating kindness toward ourselves as imperfect human beings. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in — and responding compassionately to our own imperfections without harsh self-condemnation — are essential steps toward living happier, more fulfilling lives. The materials presented in the workshop are drawn from the 8-week, empirically supported Mindful Self-Compassion program developed by Chris Germer and Kristin Neff.  Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. Practices will also be introduced to help ease stress for caregivers.

Christopher Germer & Christine Brähler: Wisdom and Compassion in Psychotherapy

Please join leaders in the field, Drs. Chris Germer and Christine Brähler, for a 2-day workshop on bringing wisdom and compassion into therapeutic settings. Chris is a co-developer (along with Kristin Neff) of the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program and Christine is a leading expert in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and International Coordinator for the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC).  We will explore the role of wisdom and compassion in psychotherapy, learning both how we can become wiser and more compassionate ourselves as therapists, and how we can help our clients to live more wisely and compassionately themselves. Responding wisely and compassionately to life’s difficulties involves finding answers to the question:

“How can I live my life as fully as possible– with open eyes and an open heart– through all the ups and downs that life has to offer?”

Clear seeing of the causes, conditions and adopting a broad perspective (wisdom) and developing good will towards self and others in the face of suffering (compassion) are intricately linked like two wings of a bird. Neuroscientific research on compassion has highlighted these two aspects as being integral to emotion regulation. Over the past decade new interventions have been developed to explicitly train in self-compassion – to comfort oneself and to see oneself clearly in the midst of shame, despair and intense distressing emotions. Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with improved emotional, interpersonal and physical wellbeing in the general population. Self-compassion appears to be a core transdiagnostic mechanism of action in psychotherapy and in effective mindfulness training.  Clinical studies of compassion-based therapy suggest that it is safe and beneficial to use for a range of psychological disorders. Adding an explicit focus on compassion to psychotherapy can help vulnerable clients establish a secure base from which to explore and manage the complexities of their lives. In clinical settings, self- compassion can be taught through the therapeutic relationship and by applying individualized and collaboratively-designed interventions and home practices. Clients with high shame, insecure  attachment, neglect or abuse often experience significant obstacles and fears, for which they require sensitive individual support.

Datoer: 26.09.2017-27.09.2017 i København.
