Workshop Description

We have all been hearing about the importance of self-compassion in the process of growing emotional and mental well-being in recent years.  For most of us though, we face clients that can have a hard time accessing and growing self compassion.  

Some clients have taken in, that without harshness there will be no self improvement. Furthermore, that it is weak or self-indulgent to be kind to themselves or have experienced so much trauma that accessing kindness towards themselves feels like a pipe dream. Many of us have trouble accessing self-compassion just like our clients do. Outcome research shows that one contributing factor to positive therapeutic outcomes for our clients is the therapist's ability to be self-compassionate. 

Have you been looking for experiential interventions that can help you and your clients access this kind brain state?  Do you know how to help a client who is having a hard time with self compassion? Do you want to experience more self-compassion towards yourself as you take on the challenging job of being a therapist?

In this workshop you will learn about the neuroscience of self-compassion, discover ways to teach clients about neuroscience, learn interventions that help clients access those states of self-compassion in their brain, and learn interventions that support clients who have a hard time with kindness towards self.  You will also learn how to increase your own self-compassion to increase response flexibility with your clients and prevent burnout. In this workshop, you will see new clinical tape and deliberate practice exercises that will show you how these interventions work in the room so that you can take these ideas out of the land of thought and into your clinical practice right away.

What to bring to this workshop:

  • Curiosity

  • Paper

  • Box of crayons/colored pencils or markers

  • Pen or pencil

Learning Objectives 

Participants will be able to:


  1. Describe at least two (2)  changes that occur in the brain between self judgment and self compassion.

  2. Describe the research that correlates positive client outcome with level of self-compassion within the therapist.

  3. Identify  at least two (2) reasons that self-compassion as a therapist can increase response flexibility and decrease burnout.

  4. List five (5)  interventions that can help clients access self-compassion. 

  5. List the steps in all interventions described in the workshop.

  6. Use deliberate practice to increase the likelihood of using new skills in psychotherapy.

  7. Identify at least two (2) blocks within self that stop your own self compassion.

  8. Utilize a soothing practice within therapy to increase self-compassion in difficult clinical moments.

She regularly teaches and speaks to people from all around the world and translates new understandings in neurobiology into practices that can support brain change. She came into the therapy world as a client who argued that feelings didn’t matter only to find herself all these years later having followed neuroscience to the obvious conclusion: we are really feeling and meaning making beings driven by our interdependence. She believes that embracing that reality is key to finding purpose and deep joy. She is the author of Setting Boundaries that Stick: How Neurobiology Can Help You Rewire Your Brain to Feel Safe, Connected and Empowered. She is an associate Instructor with the Coherence Institute and a core faculty member with Therapy Wisdom. She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, Adam, their daughter, Stella, and their rescue pointer mix, Layla.
