People who go to therapy often carry guilt for their past behaviors and shame from their past experiences and traumas.  They may have developed compensatory behaviors of caring for others and consistently, not just putting themselves last, but actively criticizing and neglecting themselves.  They seek out therapy when they realize how resentful and exhausted they have become.  Others approach therapy seeking help for the anxiety and constant self judgement that comes from perfectionism. Others seek help when they are so depressed they begin to wonder if their lives are worth living.  All of these people (and maybe you too) can benefit from self- compassion.

This training will utilize both didactic and experiential learning styles.


Define self-compassion and the difference between self-esteem and self-compassion.

Describe the three components of self-compassion.

Explain why there are commonly mistaken beliefs about self-compassion.

Learn and practice concrete self-compassion skills.
