Mindful Self-Compassion with Pittman McGehee, Jr.

Learn core skills associated with the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training, an empirically-supported program designed to cultivate self-compassion using meditation, daily life practices, lecture, group exercises and discussion. Self-compassion is an emotional skill that can be learned by anyone. Recent research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing, reduces anxiety and depression, enhances coping, promotes health behaviors, and increases motivation. This workshop will provide essential tools for treating yourself in a respectful, compassionate way whenever you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate.
