This 6 week course is tailored toward the use of mindfulness and self-compassion practices for adapting positively and constructively when faced with adversity, and is derived from the Mindful Self-Compassion eight-week programme, an empirically-supported programme based on the research and expertise of psychologists Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer.
