Self-compassion is the practice of treating ourselves with the same kindness and understanding that we would offer to a close friend or loved one, especially during times of stress or difficulty. According to Dr. Kristen Neff, one of the leading experts studying self-compassion, it’s made up of three components: mindfulness, common humanity, and kindness. Research indicates that self-compassion is a vital skill for resilience and well-being. The self-compassion break is something that can be used any time you feel distressed, overwhelmed or just in need of a pause to acknowledge your efforts.  Join Danielle Casioppo, MS, Education Specialist and Certified Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice instructor with Being Well at Yale, for this supportive and reflective practice.

This event will take place via Zoom. Registration is required.
