May 25 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
$240 – $270

Since the publication of Kristin Neff's ground-breaking book Self-Compassion, there has been a surge of interest in the science and practice of self-compassion, particularly in clinical settings.

Adults with insecure attachments and unhealthy relationships, on the other hand, usually had early experiences of inconsistent nurturing, rejection or even severe neglect and abuse.
