The Science of Self Compassion
A Brief Course from Health Not Diets
In this short course I'll take you through the scientific 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.
Learning materials include videos, audiorecordings, diagrams, examples and academic papers. Learning activities include evidence-based tasks to enhance your own level of self compassion and planning tasks for applying self compassion theory in your work and home life.
