Mindfulness and self-compassion are powerful, empirically-supported approaches to working with challenging problems, from anxiety and depression to pain and other psychophysiological conditions.  When integrated into psychotherapy, these approaches help clients experience change through kind, spacious awareness of their experience (mindfulness) and themselves (compassion). In this workshop, we will discuss the importance of combining mindfulness with compassion, and offer practical skills for integrating these key resources into your psychotherapy practice. Participants will have an opportunity to learn through lecture, experiential exercises, and observing role play.

1.  Discuss the concepts of mindfulness and self-compassion;
2.  Summarize empirical evidence for the use of mindfulness and self-compassion skills in psychotherapy;

4.  Expertise or observe mindfulness and self-compassion skills through experiential practice;
5.  Recognize differences between mindfulness and self-compassion;
