This will be a “no jargon” zone workshop. Although we anticipate many in the workshop will be psychologists, we hope to welcome many from allied health care professions. This work is directly relevant to physicians, nurses, dietician, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and other health care providers. In fact, you are welcome to bring a spouse or friend. It will be relevant and understandable!
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.
In this workshop, we will learn through direct experience how powerful acts of self-care and self-compassion can enrich and empower all other areas of valued living.
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.
The workshop will be densely experiential and will focus on a set of tools and skills that participants will be prepared to use immediately following the workshop.
