About This Program
Do you ever sacrifice your own well-being to support others? Is it a challenge for you to set and maintain clear yet compassionate boundaries? Does your empathy sometimes feel a bit burdensome? This workshop reviews a number of practical takeaways about compassion from the intersection of cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom traditions, with particular emphasis on how compassion can reduce personal distress, fatigue, and burnout for therapists and healers.
Participants will learn to:
Distinguish empathy from compassion, both conceptually and experientially
Use simple compassion practices to lessen empathy fatigue and burnout
Transform partial forms of compassion into more balanced compassion
Blend self-compassion with compassion for others
Through a combination of cutting-edge science, experiential practices, and group activities, attendees will walk away with a new perspective and practical skills for transforming empathy fatigue into compassionate resilience.
