About the Course

Course Description: Does your "inner critic" leave you feeling down sometimes? Practicing self-compassion is an important wellness excercise that helps us stand up to our inner critica and also develop emotional resilience, a more accurate self-concept, and more caring relationships. It also can foster less narcissism and lower levels of reactive anger. All of this can help us become more effective and more grounded in our personal and professional lives. Learning to practice self compassion in our own lives also can give us insight in how to encourage it in our students. 

The three primary objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. You will learn the definition of self-compassion and how it manifests in your own life.
  2. You will understand the research that has been conducted on self-compassion.
  3. You will have an opportunity to explore your own ability to cultivate self-compassion.
