Mindful Self Compassion for the Clinician and the Client
Experience a sample of a Mindful Self-Compassion practice that will assist you, as a clinician, as well as your clients, in dealing with stress, uncomfortable feelings, and unwanted behaviors. These practices can also assist you in becoming calmer and more resilient. I will present some of the history and research, as well as what Mindfulness and Inquiry both "is and isn't". I will share how I have used it with clients who have Problematic Sexual behaviors/Partners/Couples and other addictive behaviors for the past 6 years.
