Small-Group Discussion on Coping with COVID-19: Self-Compassion

Note: The May 8, 2020 session has been postponed and is being rescheduled. Please email Faculty Development if you would like to be notified of the new date once scheduled. 

 During times of stress and unknowns, our tendency is to be more self-critical. We will discuss the concept of self-compassion, including its benefits and ways it can improve your and your family’s well-being. In partnership with Natalie Burns, LMSW, MA, we are offering virtual small group discussion sessions for faculty to talk with one another about a variety of topics. To allow for a robust and candid discussion, each session will have a maximum of 10 participants. 

The conversation will be facilitated by Natalie Burns, LMSW, MA, Senior Clinical Social Worker in the Department of Psychiatry and Department of Social Work.
