    Mindful Self-Compassion offered this time for those in the healthcare professions with a UW affiliation on Sunday evenings. A chance for Seattle area professionals to learn about MSC first-hand in a supportive group of peers.

    Registration Through UW - Now Open

    Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) was developed by Christopher K. Germer, PhD, leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy (www.mindfulselfcompassion.org) and Kristin Neff, PhD, pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.self-compassion.org).

    MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience. Mindfulness is the first step in emotional healing - being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings (such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion) with a spirit of openness and curiosity.

    Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding so that we soothe and comfort ourselves when we're hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and compassionate leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

    MSC can be learned by anyone. It's the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves - especially when we're suffering - and cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and be free from suffering.

    Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that's required is a shift in the direction of our attention - recognizing that as a human being, you too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

    In MSC you will learn:

    • How to stop being so hard on yourself
    • How to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
    • How to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
    • How to transform difficult relations, both old and new
    • Mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
    • The theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
    • How to become your own best teacher

    A randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that MSC significantly increased self-compassion, compassion for others, mindfulness, and life satisfaction, as well as decreased depression, anxiety and stress.  Improvements were linked to how much a person practiced mindfulness and self-compassion in their daily lives.

    Mindfulness for medical professionals and their spouses/partners

    Washington Physicians Health Program is happy to announce new programs to enhance the health of Washington state medical professionals.

    Join us in the company of other clinicians and their family members in an investigation of mindfulness from the inside out. This class is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR is the best researched mindfulness intervention with positive research indications for:

      • Improving immune system function
      • Reducing anxiety
      • Preventing relapse of depression
      • Reducing negative emotional response to stress
      • Managing chronic pain
      • Addressing chronic health conditions including high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, heart disease, asthma, GI distress, and skin disorders
      • Effectively coping with short and long-term stressful situations
      • Encouraging growth in the brain areas associated with learning, memory, focus, attention, emotional regulation, and empathy
      • Enhancing compassion and altruism
      • Reducing pregnancy-related anxiety
      • Helping professionals cope with stress, connect with patients, and reduce burnout-inducing negative emotions and anxiety
      • Coping with PTSD (veterans and other sufferers)
      • Increasing “mindfulness of eating” (e.g., in relationship to obesity)
      • Improving general health and well-being through a focus on prevention and greater awareness of what's truly harmful and helpful

        This shorter Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals class was inspired by MBSR and offers a deep taste of mindfulness training in a briefer 5-week period. 

        Eligibility:
        These programs will be open to any medical professional along with your spouse or partner. No past or current involvement with WPHP is necessary.

        To gather with like-minded peers from the medical profession in a supportive group is a deeply beneficial aspect of this program.

        • increase immune system function
        • reduce anxiety
        • prevent relapse of depression
        • reduce negative emotions responding to stress
        • manage chronic pain
        • help manage chronic health conditions including high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, heart disease, asthma, GI distress, and skin disorders
        • provide an effective coping mechanism for short and long-term stressful situations
        • encourage growth in the brain areas associated with learning, memory, focus, attention, emotional regulation, and empathy
        • enhance compassion and altruism
        • with relationships and communication, parents reduce pregnancy-related anxiety
        • help professionals cope with stress, connect with patients, and reduce burnout-inducing negative emotions and anxiety.
        • help veterans and other sufferers of PTSD
        • with obesity - increase “mindfulness of eating”
        • provide an increase in general health and well-being through a focus on prevention and improved awareness of what's truly harmful and helpful

        This condensed Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals class includes much of the MBSR material, offering a deep taste of mindfulness benefits in a shorter class.
