A short online course for health professionals to improve their knowledge and skills in Self Compassion for themselves and their clients.

In this short course I’ll take you through the scientific research and academic operationalisation of self compassion, some of its associations and effects on individuals and their self care as well as on health practitioners with compassion fatigue and burnout.  You’ll learn how to weave language that models a self compassionate attitude into your counselling and encounters with others and yourself.

Learning materials include videos, audio-recordings, diagrams, examples and academic papers. Learning activities include evidence-based tasks to enhance your own level of self compassion and planning tasks for applying self compassion theory in your work and home life.

While this course may assist you in your work with individuals, it is for educational purposes only and does not constitute credentialing.

PLEASE NOTE: Some of the materials used in this brief course were first developed for the Unpacking Weight Science Podcast by Fiona Willer, AdvAPD, a monthly professional development podcast, available via subscription on Patreon.  For more details please see https://www.unpackingweightscience.com/
