Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand what the literature suggests in regards to self-compassion-based intervention for youth.
  2. understand what the literature suggests in regards to how to properly assess for self-compassion with youth.
  3. understand how researching self-compassion-based intervention and assessment is well-suited for the school environment.

Description

Youth-based self-compassion literature focusing on intervention and assessment, though in its infancy, has suggested promising results. Within this presentation, we will be highlighting these results, explaining why the school environment is well-suited for future self-compassion investigations, and exploring how the construct of self-compassion is uniquely opportune for common mechanism of change research. Practitioners will also come away with knowledge about specific self-compassion interventions and assessments they can employ within schools.
