Healthy Acadia Online Workshop
September 1 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Community members are invited to join Healthy Acadia on Thursday, Sept. 1, from 5 to 6 p.m., via Zoom, for “Cultivating Self-Compassion in Children and Caregivers,” an experiential workshop for caregivers of children, with special guest Jamie Lynn Tatera. The free online event is the latest installment in Healthy Acadia’s Monthly Mindfulness series.
What is self-compassion, and how do children develop this vital skill? Self-compassion is an inner resource that enables adults and children to soothe themselves in the presence of distress and also motivate themselves to grow and change in important ways. Self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, coping with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, and more satisfying personal relationships. This resource can be developed in childhood and also learned by adults.
Join Jamie Lynn Tatera for an experiential self-compassion workshop for parents and caregivers. Participants will discover how to develop the skill of self-compassion as well as learn tips for cultivating self-compassion in children.
