Description

Mindfulness and compassion practices are powerful tools for both psychotherapists and their clients. These practices help us maintain therapeutic presence when facing difficult emotions, keep perspective on our reactions, and stay empathically attuned. They can also help clients develop the affect tolerance and metacognitive awareness needed to integrate and work with collective trauma experiences.

But these mindfulness and compassion techniques are not one-size-fits-all remedies. Extensive scientific research has revealed that it matters what we practice.

Using insights from Dr. Tania Singer’s ‘ReSource Project’, this workshop will explore the various effects of techniques designed to cultivate presence, perspective-taking, empathy and compassion, and attunement. You will learn which practices to use under which circumstances yourself, both inside and outside the clinical hour.

And using insights from social neuroscience, we will examine how to balance empathy, compassion, self-compassion, and mindfulness practices. The goal here is to optimize therapeutic presence and avoid being overwhelmed by powerful emotions such as empathic distress or burnout.
