In this workshop, you will learn how to:
- Identify the differences and similarities among self-compassion, self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence.
- Discuss the role of self-criticism, self-judgment, and self-punishment in maintaining depression, OCD (including intrusive thoughts), & anxiety disorders (as well as perfectionism).
- Compare and contrast how different psychotherapy modalities approach the practice of self-compassion.
- Demonstrate how to apply self-compassion skills & practices to depression, OCD, & anxiety disorders.
- Identify the roadblocks and challenges of including self-compassion in treating anxiety, depression, and OCD and how to overcome them in therapy.
Research shows that self-compassion is not only highly effective at reducing one’s anxiety, depression, and stress, but it also improves motivation, positive self-talk, and an overall sense of well-being. Conversely, we also know that failing to identify symptoms of self-criticism, self-judgment, and self-punishment can lead to longer recovery times, increased treatment drop-out, and worsening mental health symptoms.
In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn how to utilize self-compassion as an essential tool in anxiety, depression, and OCD recovery. Kimberley Quinlan, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist & Author of The Self-Compassion Workbook for OCD, will demonstrate how powerful self-compassion can be in breaking the cycle of anxiety, OCD & depression as well as perfectionism and intrusive thoughts.
Kimberley will teach the foundations of self-compassion and allow attendees to practice and administer effective, evidence-based practices that will help with your the most challenging cases. This presentation will also cover the common roadblocks to self-compassion, and attendees will have an opportunity to troubleshoot some of their own (or their client's) struggles with self-kindness during a Q&A with the presenter.
