The Power of Mindful Self-Compassion, Copenhagen S, Denmark

with Kristin Neff

July 17, 2017

Course Navigation

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we cared about. Rather than continually judging and evaluating ourselves, self-compassion involves generating kindness toward ourselves as imperfect human beings. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in — and responding compassionately to our own imperfections without harsh self-condemnation — are essential steps toward living happier, more fulfilling lives. The materials presented in the workshop are drawn from the 8-week, empirically supported Mindful Self-Compassion program developed by Chris Germer and Kristin Neff. Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. Practices will also be introduced to help ease stress for caregivers. This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.

In Danish:

Self-compassion er at udvise medfølelse med sig selv i øjeblikke, hvor man oplever sig selv som utilstrækkelig, hvor man fejler eller hvor man generelt oplever lidelse. Self-compassion kan ses som “hjertet” i mindfulness. Hvor mindfulness peger på: “åbenhed overfor indre oplevelser”, tilføjer self-compassion: “hvad har jeg brug for?”. Stadig mere forskning viser, at self-compassion er forbundet med følelsesmæssig trivsel og modstandskraft, social forbundethed, opretholdelse af sunde vaner, lavere niveauer af angst og depression og mindre selvkritik og perfektionisme.

Kristin Neff, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Human Development and Culture Universitetet i Texas ved Austin, er en af de første der har lavet videnskabelige undersøgelser af self-compassion. Hendes forskningsmæssige indsats har haft fokus på at definere self-compassion og på at kunne måle det. Ud over at have publiceret en lang række videnskabelige artikler om emnet, er hun forfatter til “Self-Compassion” (2011). Kristin Neff tilbyder workshops i Self-Compassion på verdensplan, og har udviklet et empirisk undersøttet program: Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) der lærer mennesker at praktisere self-Compassion og venlighed overfor sig selv.
