12:00 pm - 1:30 pm (Wednesdays)

**This is a Zoom class on Wednesdays from 12 pm to 1:30 pm**

Learn the skills we all need to meet life’s challenges with more wisdom and kindness. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and motivates you for life-long growth, while avoiding burnout.

This six-week Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) will teach you how to hold yourself with tenderness and compassion when you need it most — when you fail, feel inadequate, and are suffering. Learn MSC’s key informal practices, as well as brief practices in mindfulness right from home.


Heidi Shaw, LCSW


Heidi is a licensed clinical social worker and has provided psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, and children for 15 years; including a decade of experience as a school therapist. She has been trained in Mindful Self- Compassion (MSC) by the developers of the program, Kristin Neff and Chris Germer, and teaches the course as part of USC’s mindfulness initiative. She also participated in the inaugural training program for MSC for Teens, Making Friends with Yourself. She is excited to offer this class to teens, who often struggle with self-acceptance. Heidi believes that the earlier in life we can learn to love, appreciate and accept ourselves, the more joy, happiness, and love we can experience.
