Instructor: Roseann Cervelli, MS, LCADC, CCS, CPS
No matter what therapy skill sets one utilizes in their work with clients-from adolescents to seniors- training in the skills of self-compassion and compassion for others can enhance, expand, and deepen one’s therapeutic tool kit and lead to more support, better balance, and growth for clients, both in individual and group settings. It is both trans-diagnostic and trans-theoretical. This mindful application compassion skills and practices serves both the therapist and the client in their ability to build trust, safety and caring resonance in the therapeutic setting. Throughout the course, we will explore and deepen our understanding of integrating Mindful Self Compassion in psychotherapy: therapeutic presence, therapeutic alliance (including diversity, equity and inclusion) and therapeutic interventions to meet the particular area of a clients’ needs. We will explore how one can concretely integrate self-compassion into one’s work through the use of specific skills, somatic exercises and scripted meditations. Through this lens, we will deepen our understanding of the science of self-compassion and its therapeutic role in working with people who suffer from depression, anxiety, trauma, shame, eating disorders and other addictions.
