This cross-disciplinary symposium is designed to bring together academics, clinicians, researchers, and students from different disciplines within The University of Queensland and from the community, to present on how compassion is or could be a part of their research, studies, or practice.
The compassion symposium consists of the free keynote address, and the full-day conference.
Chris’ keynote address will describe what we mean by self-compassion, identify common myths, and review the latest research. Obstacles to practicing self-compassion will be addressed along with ways to overcome them. Finally, important new developments in the field, such as the yin and yang of self-compassion and a re-evaluation of shame through the eyes of self-compassion, will be presented.
