Sometimes we are too critical or demanding towards ourselves. Sometimes the critique from others can be stagnating.

Our self-critical thougths are there to help us but unfortunately they can be too perfectionistic. Learning self-compassion can help us to overcome the blocks and to be more productive.

The workhop is based on mindfulness based practices with the content of self-compassion.

The workshop consists of 5 sessions, and is targeted especially for students working on their master's or doctoral thesis.

Language of the workshop is English.

Workshop leaders: psychologists Merita Petäjä and Minna Nevala.

Workshop is held via Zoom and MyCourses.
