Whether you’re a counselor, teacher, or social worker, serving children is hard. At any given moment there are numerous tasks required of you, and you often feel like your plate is overflowing. In addition to the pressures of work, stress in your personal life – taking care of a family, health concerns, or financial burdens - take their toll. You’re taking care of everyone, and often feel exhausted.
This self-compassion session teach you how to care for yourself in the moment that you most need it. Research has shown that those who are more self-compassionate experience less stress, anxiety, and depression, are more resilient, and better able to deal with emotional challenges. Drawn from the internationally-acclaimed Mindful Self-Compassion program, created by Drs. Kristin Neff (educational psychologist at University of Texas, Austin) and Chris Germer, (clinical psychologist, Harvard University), the sessions will be comprised of didactic presentations, guided practices, and discussions which will offer specific tools that you can use to give yourself the support you deserve.

East Bay Agency for Children (EBAC) programs are particularly effective as they benefit from our staff and agency experience, knowledge, and cultural and language competence in serving children and communities disproportionately impacted by poverty, violence, marginalization, loss of loved ones, and other forms of trauma.
Our programs and service each reflect one or more of our three strategies:
Building Resiliency-We deliver intervention services that help children and families protect themselves against long term harm from chronic exposure to adversity
Aiding in Recovery-We deliver intervention services that treat children exhibiting traumatic stress symptoms and emotional or behavioral disorders
Prevention-We deliver services that reduce the risk of childhood adverse experiences
