Compassion for Self and Others: A Workshop in Danbury

The Connecticut Counseling Association’s (CCA) Western Chapter is hosting a compassion workshop on January 19, from 8:45 to 11am, at Western Connecticut State University’s Mid-Town Campus. The presenter is Yvonne Bregman, LCSW (, who has been in private practice in Ridgefield since 2003. 

The workshop covers compassion as a modality of care for yourselves and your clients. Participants will learn a four-step compassion practice, based on Drs. Kristin Neff and Ladner’s research. It will help foster development of self-compassion as part of a “compassion toolbox.” You will learn the data supporting compassion-based practice in your work, as well as at least two exercises to encourage self-compassion.

Sign-in begins at 8:45am, followed by the presentation from 9 to 11am. For those earning a continuing education (CE) certificate, you must sign in and out. The certificates will be emailed out 3 to 5 weeks after the workshop. Two free CE hours will be offered to current CCA Members only. Non-CCA members can attend, but need to register and will not receive CEs unless they become a CCA member. Students are welcome to fill out a CE evaluation form at the end of the workshop, and sign in and out. 

If needed, the event’s snow date is January 26.
