Practicing Self-Compassion


Does your “inner critic” leave you feeling down sometimes?

Practicing self-compassion is an important wellness exercise that helps us stand up to our inner critic and also develop emotional resilience, a more accurate self-concept, and more caring relationships. It also can foster less narcissism and lower levels of reactive anger. All of this can help us become more effective and more grounded in our personal and professional lives. Learning to practice self-compassion in our own lives also can give us insight into how to encourage it in our students.

This course is offered by MSEA’s Center for Education Policy and Practice in conjunction with Trinity Washington College for one graduate credit that can be applied to recertification in most jurisdictions. The course is primarily self-paced and virtual asynchronous with two virtual synchronous sessions (1.5 hours each).
