We often are skilled at giving support, comfort and compassion to the people around us, but have difficulty offering that same level of compassion and care to ourselves. This is especially true of women, due to cultural conditioning and expectations. Research has shown that self-compassion serves as a buffer not only to depression and anxiety, but also to dissatisfaction and stress during difficult transitions and situations. Moreover, self-compassion has been shown to protect caregivers from burnout and compassion fatigue, increase satisfaction with the caregiving role, and promote proactivity and empowered action. In this workshop, we’ll explore principles and experiential meditation-based practices of Mindful Self-Compassion that can help support us in challenging times. The workshop is designed for all who self-identify as women.

Hosted by the Keck School of Medicine’s Office of Well-being, Center for Gender Equity in Medicine & Science (GEMS) and USC’s Women in Management (WIM).
