A Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion

 6-Week Online Series

The Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) is tailored toward the use of mindfulness and self-compassion practices for adapting positively and constructively when faced with adversity, and is derived from the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSCTM) eight-week program, an empirically-supported course developed by psychologists Chris Germer and Kristin Neff. 

The course is rooted in the three components of Mindful Self-Compassion: mindful awareness, common humanity, and self-kindness.

Through these components, the course aims for participants to: 

  • Be able to handle overwhelming emotions with greater ease 
  • Approach difficult situations with calm, resolve, and self-motivation 
  • Reconnect with the values that help in finding purpose in work 
  • Learn inner resilience practices that can be used as stressful circumstances occur
