Event description
Self-Compassion and Positive Embodiment: Resources for Treatment Providers

About this event

Elizabeth Scott LCSW, CEDS-S, is an educator and psychotherapist whose work focuses on the intersection of embodiment, social justice and mindfulness. As Co-Founder and Director of Training for The Body Positive, Elizabeth has taught educators and students to use the Be Body Positive model to promote joyful embodiment and excellent self-care since 1997. In her private practice, she trains treatment providers in her Big-Hearted Embodiment model and is developing an international community of clinicians who are committed to social justice and positive embodiment as core values in their treatment work. Elizabeth studies Insight Meditation and practices psychotherapy in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In this workshop Elizabeth will introduce the exciting research findings of Kristen Neff on the value of cultivating self-compassion as well as Niva Piran’s research that led to the establishment of her Developmental Theory of Embodiment. Their research supports powerful practices that can help us to free our clients from suffocating social conditions that lead to perfectionism and disruptions in embodiment like eating disorders. Through guided experiential activities and discussion Elizabeth will introduce participants to validated practices that improve body image and self-care and will discuss applications for clinical work.

After this presentation, participants will be able to:

List three social conditions that promote disruptions in embodiment according to Niva Piran’s research.

Define the difference between self-compassion and competitive “self-esteem” in the research of Kristen Neff.

List three of Niva Piran’s “Positive Embodiment” constructs

CE will be offered for this event.
