The target audience for this medical event is intended for those who wish to teach the MSC program, those who would like to integrate mindfulness and self-compassion in their ongoing professional activities (i.e., psychotherapy, coaching, nursing, teaching, etc.), and individuals who have a professional interest in the field (i.e., researchers, administrators, etc.). This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 38.25 contact hours. Conference Description : MSC Teacher Training is an intensive, 6-day, the residential program facilitated by a team of senior MSC teachers. The training is built around the eight weekly sessions of MSC with each half day dedicated to a condensed, experiential review of one of the sessions, followed by small group activities designed to give attendees opportunities to practice teaching, guiding and facilitating discussion in that session with the close consultation of one of the Teacher Trainers. In addition, the training includes short talks, group exercises, discussion, and periods of silence. Participants will be provided with the essential materials to teach MSC programs. Conference Objectives are : • Deepen one’s personal practice of responding to difficult emotions with mindfulness and compassion. • Summarize current basic theory and research on self-compassion. • Identify the core themes and practices presented in each of the eight group sessions of MSC, plus the retreat day. • Develop the skills necessary to facilitate MSC groups, including how to guide meditation, teach from each participant’s direct experience, and facilitate group cohesion. • Identify obstacles to mindful self-compassion practice and strategies for overcoming them. • Embody a mindful and compassionate stance toward students of the MSC program as they confront challenges to their practice. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
