This adaptation of the evidence-based Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program aims to improve wellbeing and resilience by teaching skills to respond to distressing emotional situations. As opposed to other self-care techniques, self-compassion can be used on the spot, both at work and at home. The myriad of personal practices support us in meeting our own suffering in loving, transformative ways.
