Updated Language for Course Readings for Your Participants
With the recent publication of the Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, MSC teachers now have a rich new resource to share with participants. As we noted in the last Teacher Bulletin, this workbook will replace the full handout booklet that has been provided in the past in PDF form (the full handout booklet will no longer be supported). There will be a new trimmed-down version of the handout booklet for teachers to share, but we hope that teachers will either provide the workbook to participants or strongly recommend that their participants purchase it for use during the course.
The following is the language that CMSC is using for CMSC-sponsored MSC programs:
Highly recommended while participating in the MSC course:
- The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer
It is recommended, but not required, that participants read the following two books before participating in MSC:
- Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself by Kristin Neff
- The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion by Christopher Germer
If teachers wish to provide a link to purchase the new workbook directly from Guilford Publications at a discounted rate, you can forward this one to them, suggest that they check online retailers as well.
