Spend two days, deeply focused on self-care and self-compassion:

reversing chronic ill health

In both mental health and physical medicine the modern world is taking its toll and we need to find new ways to counteract these challenges. Healthcare increasingly faces a shift from treating acute illness to understanding and treating chronic illness.

It is ironic that we in health care know about the necessity of self-care. And yet, sometimes we find it easier to care for others than for ourselves.
How about you?
If you are thinking about giving yourself a little extra love in 2017….
Do not travel alone…
Many of our patients also find it easier to care for others than for themselves.

the deepest kindness

Self-Care and Self-Compassion are often experienced as competing with “other-focused” values, such as parenting, intimate relations, and work. Very often, self-care is last on the list. Or, maybe not at all.
In this workshop, we will explore the meaning of self-care and self-neglect. We will explore the obstacles to self-care and show small ways to offer ourselves the deepest kindness. The same kindness we would easily offer a friend or loved one.
Self-acceptance, self-care, and self-kindness are real and achievable.

this workshop

Our two days together will focus on values work in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. But, ACT is an integrated model, so our work will necessarily touch upon all other components of the model. We will find ways in which perspective taking and openness to experience can shed new light on self-care, transforming self-care from a to-do list into an act of the deepest kindness.

ACT principles will guide participants in new interventions, worksheets, and interviews that can be used in any human services environment, including mental health clinics, but also, medical settings, workplaces, schools, and community centers.

Join us this February in the UK for two events. Spend two days, deeply focused on self-care and self-compassion:

 

These workshops will not be large. We will have a chance to get up close and personal. I would really like to encourage participation from a broad array of healthcare providers.

The workshop will give you tools to help your patients begin to make small, meaningful changes in their lives.

with my warmest regards,

Kelly
