This program will benefit LMFT, LPCC, LEP and LCSW licensees and pre licensees. Our presentation on self-compassion offers an introduction to a research-based program (MSC) associated with a wide range of positive clinical outcomes. There is growing research that when therapists themselves practice self-compassion they are more empathic with their clients, able to more effectively regulate their own emotions, less vulnerable to burnout, and more competent overall.

Includes: Breakfast and meets the qualifications for 2 hours of continuing education credit for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and/or LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.  Sacramento Valley Chapter of California Marriage and Family Therapist CAMFT CEPA CE Provider #62279 CE Credit will be awarded on site and to participants at completion of the course. 
No CEs will be awarded to persons arriving late or leaving early. Partial CE credit will not be awarded.

Workshop Information:

This presentation will draw from the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program developed by Kristin Neff, Ph.D., and Christopher Germer, Ph.D. Both presenters are Trained MSC Teachers. Over the past decade an increasingly large body of research by Neff and others has linked self-compassion to trauma resiliency, body satisfaction and appreciation, healthy aging, decreased depression, decreased anxiety, increased relationship satisfaction, and maintenance of health-related behaviors like diet and exercise. This presentation will offer an introduction to self-compassion practice. Opportunities for experiential learning will be provided.
