⭐ 16th February 2018 – A compassionate approach to the forms and functions of self-criticism: a personal practice workshop

CPD Event title: A compassionate approach to the forms and functions of self-criticism: a personal practice workshop

Brief Description Of Event: This workshop will explore with participants the nature and functions of self-criticism, distinguishing them from guilt and other self-conscious emotions.

Learning Objectives: Participants will then be introduced to some of the basic compassion focused mind training practices such as breathing and grounding, cultivating the compassion mind and self, functional analysis of self-criticism and using the compassionate self to address self-criticism and compassionately engaging with self-criticism. We will explore the distinction between shame based self-criticism and compassion-based self correction. Participants will be given opportunities to work with their own material. But participants should be aware however that this is a practice workshop and not personal therapy workshop and are responsible for their own well-being during the workshop.
The workshop is suitable for all those who are engaged in therapeutic interactions with clients.
It will contribute six hours Continuing Professional Development
