Self-Compassion

Tuesdays 10:00-11:30am

Led by Matthew Goodman, PhD

Most of us are rock stars at showing compassion towards others. When it comes to ourselves, however, the opposite can be true: we tend to judge, criticize, and treat ourselves more harshly than we would a good friend. Self-compassion changes the way we relate to our own experience. Research suggests this can greatly enhance our mental and physical well-being. This group teaches the foundational skills of self-compassion. Participants will learn these skills through didactic material, experiential practices, group conversation, and daily home practices. The goal is to develop more resiliency in the face of life’s inevitable stressors.
