How do you practice Self-Compassion?

Here is a sequence of tricks and tips to try:

•Find a quiet safe space
•Bring awareness to something sensory (body sensations, sounds, scents, taste, touch)
•Validate the feeling as suffering/pain/challenging
•Remember you are not alone in feeling or experiencing this
•Connect with yourself by placing your hand on her chest, shoulder, arm, etc.
&
•Speak to yourself in a way you would speak to someone you love in a nurturing comforting way.

…It could be something like:

“This is really hard, you're doing the best you can.”

Self compassionate statements should feel authentic and genuine. If it feels too positive, try a neutral statement about

As clinicians, we are often in challenging situations in which we provide support and hold space for clients. Creative and experiential techniques can greatly aid us in doing this work, especially when many sessions are happening virtually throughout a pandemic.

For the first time, many of us are experiencing similar stressors and triggers as our clients. This is requiring clinicians to explore countertransference in a unique and new way. Using creative techniques allows a space for clinicians to reflect and contain their client’s stressors as well as their own feelings. This training will provide creative tools and strategies clinicians can use in their work with clients.

As we enter March, many feelings begin to stir and we want you to know... these feelings are okay and it is normal to have negative emotions.
