Many people, even those who haven’t done so before, are judging themselves for their reactions right now. For people who tend to be hard on themselves, a crisis like the one we are in is especially challenging.
Self-compassion therapy is one way to begin to process our emotions and become kind towards ourselves and our emotions. While self-compassion sounds simple, for many it is exceptionally hard, especially when everything feels unsure.
Therapist Group Leader: Mo Deslandes, PsyD
Adults: Tuesdays, 6-7 pm.
This group will focus on the self-compassion work outlined by Kristen Neff and work towards being kinder to ourselves through mindfulness, self-compassion, and common humanity. This group aims to develop emotional and cognitive skills for greater self compassion.
Group therapy offers participants the opportunity to interact with others with similar issues in a safe, supportive environment, led by a trained and licensed therapist.
The group for teens may fill the gap for services previously provided by school social workers. (Click here for information on the Virtual Therapy Group for Self-compassion for teens.)
Especially as people are sheltering-at-home, virtual groups can counter feelings of isolation while connecting and sharing experiences together.
This group requires a minimum of 3 people to run and can accommodate up to 8 people.
Fees are $25 per person, per session. A link and instructions to join will be sent after intake.
