This synchronously taught through Zoom course taught by Lea Christo, MSW, LICSW and Mary Ann Mariani, Ph.D., covers the psychoeducational self-compassion program that originated from the longstanding traditions of mindfulness and compassion. The three core components of mindfulness-based self-compassion (self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness) are covered and practiced. The course will cover the research conducted in self-compassion and the empirical evidence supporting the efficacy of self-compassion in the prevention of depression and anxiety symptoms. Developing skills in the practice of self-compassion can assist clients and the helping professional in dealing with stress and promoting wellness. This course is designed for counselors, educators and professionals in health and human services. Prior meditation practice is not required.
