Online: Finding Self-Compassion in Uncertain Times
This is a discussion-based class for early childhood teachers who like to learn by reflecting on their own opinions and reactions and by listening to those of other people. Those who register will be emailed a 3-page article to read before class. In our field, we learn to have empathy for children and families, but do we remember to have self-compassion? Let’s explore how our earliest memories impact how we talk to (and about) ourselves and how that, in turn, affects our work with children. Let’s also discuss what it looks like to be compassionate to ourselves during this stressful time of uncertainty and change.
This class will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 pm as a live, online class (it will not be recorded). Those who register and pay will be emailed a link to register with Zoom, our online platform.
