Learn the skills we all need to meet life’s challenges with more wisdom and kindness.

Our abridged 6-week course, The Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC), will teach you how to hold yourself with tenderness and compassion when you need it most — when you fail, feel inadequate and are suffering. Learn MSC’s key informal practices, as well as brief practices in mindfulness right from home.

Too often we meet pain and challenge with harshness and criticism. SC-MSC will teach you how to be present and courageous in the face of physical and emotional pain rather than fighting it or turning away from it – perfect for this season of uncertainty.

SC-MSC was developed by MSC’s pioneering researchers and clinicians Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer for those who were short on time and could not engage in the longer 2 ½ hour weekly class.

Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and motivates you for life-long growth, while avoiding burnout.  All that’s required is a shift in the direction of your attention – recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the main components of self-compassion and mindfulness and how these may be integrated into the roles of healthcare professionals.
  • Explain the difference between empathy and compassion and utilize strategies to avoid emotional exhaustion.
  • Demonstrate strategies they can use on the job to regulate difficult emotions while caring for others in pain.
  • Apply at least one skill from each session to help them regulate emotions and care for themselves emotionally while caring for others who are experiencing difficulty.
