Presented by Sharp Memorial Hospital plus

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. Rapidly expanding research has clearly demonstrated that self-compassion enhances emotional well-being and reduces anxiety and depression. It can also help to maintain healthy habits such as diet and exercise and is related to better relationships.

The emphasis of the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program is on enhancing emotional resources and personal capacities to meet life challenges. While researchers are still striving to understand why some post-COVID-19 clients experience "long-haul" symptoms, complementary approaches like MSC training can give such clients better tools to cope with the debilitating symptoms.

This program is not group therapy, although participants are encouraged to share their learning experiences as they develop MSC. The teacher is committed to providing an environment of safety, support, privacy and individual responsibility within a dynamic group experience.

In-class activities include lectures, guided mindful self-compassion exercises and discussions. Since the program is cumulative with each session building on previous meetings, we suggest that you do not sign up if you know in advance that you will miss more than two classes.

Target Audience: Post-COVID-19 clients (4 weeks or more) who are experiencing long-haul symptoms; oncology/cancer patients

Learning Objectives: Following this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe key research supporting the benefits of mindful self-compassion
  • Identify the three fundamental components of mindful self-compassion
  • Employ the skill of mindfulness to identify opportunities for self-compassion
  • Relate to difficult emotions with greater moment-by-moment mindfulness, acceptance and ease
  • Integrate core mindfulness and self-compassion exercises and skills into daily life
