This training will highlight the core concepts of self-compassion (self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness), the research-based positive impacts of self-compassion, and what distinguishes self-compassion from other similar concepts. Participants will understand how to define “trying times” on an individual and systemic level, and how these difficult situations can impact our ability to support our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our clients. Participants will learn best practices for applying elements of self-compassion in these challenging scenarios. This training is intended for field-based mental health and homeless service providers in Los Angeles County.
