MINDFUL SELF-COMPASSION (MSC), 8-week course, 24 CE's available. Mondays 5:30-8:30pm, Sept 9th - Oct 28th. East Sacramento. Taught by Luana Coloma Cook, Psy.D. and Sean Cook, Psy.D.; both instructors certified to teach the MSC program developed by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer. Intuitively, most of us sense how helpful it would be to befriend ourselves, but it can be hard to put this idea into practice. Do you have clients where the work is stuck because of shame, self-criticism, or other-focused blame (same root, different target)? Self-compassion can be the catalyst to getting unstuck. Feel free to refer clients who could benefit. Of course, we can best help others develop self-compassion when we embody it ourselves. We would welcome you joining us yourself-24 CE's. Sean @ 916-717-1725 or Luana @ 916-612-9101. We would be happy to chat with you, or someone you refer, to help you determine if the course is a good fit.
