Learning Outcomes

In this short course I'll take you through the research and academic operationalisation of self compassion, some of its associations and effects on individuals and their self care as well as on health practitioners with compassion fatigue and burnout. You'll learn how to weave language that models a self compassionate attitude into your counselling and encounters with others and yourself.
