At the end of the series, we will look at all that we have practiced over eight weeks and apply it to the Holidays and moving into the year ahead. Throughout the series, participants are encouraged to take the self-compassion test at https://self-compassion.org/self-compassion-test/
Week Seven: Here’s the hard thing: self-judgment is pretty motivating. So, let’s think about other ways that we can motivate ourselves by believing that we deserve the dialogue that is encouraging and supportive in a hard situation instead of wishing the worst on ourselves because we have built this story that the worst is what we deserve and what we will get. And that the tough talk will motivate us to press on.
The group is facilitated by Laura Beth DeHority, LMFT, parent to special needs young adults, and former corporate communicator. Her goal is to establish practical skills to lower parental stress in a time period unlike any other.
