Self-Compassion for personal and professional practice

Presenter: Amy Finlay-Jones

Curtin University, Telethon Kids Institute; University of Western Australia

Self-Compassion is an essential focus for clinicians – come and learn how to apply this focus to both your clients and yourself!

This workshop will provide a comprehensive grounding in core elements of self-compassion theory, research, and practice and is designed for therapists wishing to work with self-compassion as a personal practice (i.e., the intrapersonal realm) as well as those interested in understanding how self-compassion can be integrated into psychotherapy, both as an interpersonal practice (i.e., compassionate relationship) and as a direct practice with clients.

In this workshop we will explore the theoretical foundations of self-compassion and discuss the evidence for self-compassion as a means of promoting wellbeing and presence for those working in the caring professions. We will also discuss theory and research that speaks to self-compassion as a transdiagnostic mechanism of action in therapy and discuss the use of self-compassion-based approaches with clients with specific presenting issues.

Using a range of individual, dyadic and group practices, we will work with the felt experience of self-compassion, as well exploring how and for whom self-compassion practices can be integrated into therapeutic sessions. Additionally, we will reflect on the importance of self-compassion in therapeutic relationships and learn strategies to model and incorporate self-compassion into relationships with clients.
