The Menninger Clinic is pleased to offer Self-compassion in the Recovery Process, a webinar for mental health professionals, Friday, January 27,2023. Kerry Horrell, PhD, will present this free continuing education event from 12 to 1 pm CT.
People who are attempting to recover from a variety of mental illnesses commonly use self-criticism to motivate themselves toward healing. This often exacerbates their symptoms rather than reduce them. Thus, it is vital for clinicians to understand the importance of self-compassion and facilitate clients' ability to engage in this skill.
This webinar will aim to provide a robust understanding of what self-compassion is, how it aids in recovering from mental illness and why it can be challenging for clients to access. Special attention will be paid to the relationship between self-compassion and shame. Interventions for increasing self-compassion will be provided.
