  • Personal Statement

  • Being affected by a mental health diagnosis may not necessarily prevent you from being admitted to the SCIP certification program. However, when sharing self-compassion with others, we must be in touch with and hold our own human vulnerability with great kindness in order to be a model to others and as such, we carry great responsibility for the safety of our clients. We also need to be able to recognize and to hold the feelings of vulnerability within our clients with great stability, calm, courage, wisdom, and kindness. We understand that answers to these questions may not be straightforward and are personal. Please feel free to opt for a private conversation if you prefer that by including a note as your response to any of these questions as to how and when we may contact you for this.
  • In this section please note any ways in which you may be able to support this mission in your own practice and as a clinician after completing the SCIP certification program.
