Event description

Description

This presentation addresses the importance of self-compassion as a tool for promoting our own well-being. Research has shown that self-compassion boosts happiness, reduces both anxiety and depression, and actually improves our physical health. This workshop will cover tools that allow an individual to be more self-compassionate, loving, and kind to oneself, a practice often missing in our society today.

It will teach the following:

  • Definition of self-compassion
  • Why it is so difficult to be self-compassionate in our culture
  • How to defeat our inner critic, reframe our thoughts, and stop being so hard on ourselves
  • How to strengthen our inner voice and become more comfortable with difficult feelings
  • How to motivate ourselves to move forward in our lives with self-kindness rather than self-criticism
  • How mindfulness and gratitude enrich our lives
  • Additional tools to drive well being

This free event is sponsored by Maine Township's MaineStay Youth & Family Services and Chicago Behavioral Hospital. It is appropriate for social service professionals and includes 2.0 free CEUs for social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses. Continental breakfast will be available from 8:30-9:00 AM. Advance registration is requested as seating for this event is limited.
