Welcome to the 2nd Annual Compassion in Therapy Summit!

A growing body of research is illuminating what many of us already intuitively know: when we more deeply embody compassionate presence, our clients and patients tend to heal and transform more quickly and powerfully.  

This free community event is for mental health professionals of all professions and backgrounds to explore how we can meaningfully integrate mindfulness, self-compassion, and compassion both into our clinical work, and our lives. 

We hope you’ll join us!

Here's What Some of the 70,000+ Attendees Last Year Said...

A perfect mix of research background, overview of compassion based therapy and concrete information of how to integrate it in the daily clinical practice! Exactly what I needed at this point in my therapeutic experience with compassion-based therapies.

Julian M,

Therapist

Loved that each talk incorporated at least one direct practice that I can use in sessions with clients. Good mix of experiental and theoretical.

Isaac F,

Social Worker

Incredibly impressed by the integration of research, practical strategies, and down to earth sharing of information. I felt as if I was receiving a one-on-one teaching session and made pages of notes to reflect on later. Thank you so much for such an uplifting and informative event.

Natalie P,

Psychotherapist

Excellent speakers; light and conversational tone (not "too academic")

Charlotte,

Jungian Analyst

Such a gift to feel connected to such a great, worldwide, compassionate group of people who share the same ideas, convictions, beliefs and values. I was craving this type of community- I had been feeling alone here in Florida with regards to this type of practice.

Rafa G,

LMHC

I had goose bumps throughout this whole hour because I can feel how real and important this is in my bones. I am currently in grad school and have found myself feeling very down for the past year and burdened by western mental health approaches (i.e. diagnosis). This event inspired me to continue listening to my soul and doing this work in a harmonious and healing way that might not look like what they teach in school. Thank you

Jill M,

Mental Health Counselor

Heartfelt. Learning packed.

Megan R,

Counselor

Charlotte,

Germany

I thought I knew quite a lot already about “therapeutic presence”, but this event helped me to gain a lot more and deeper insight. Thank you so much for this profound overview of such an important theme.

Katharina W,

Psychotherapist

The discussions were so intimate, grounded and touching. There was a natural warmth to the interaction that was both skilled and focused, and as a result the information presented had more meaning.

Brian Q,

Clinical Services Manager

As a clinician of color, this was such a necessary panel. What a beautiful discussion–the guided meditation felt like poetry to my soul. Thank you, thank you!

Natalia B,

Psychologist

Such a helpful and dual-purpose Summit — teaching us things we can use and apply to both our clients and to our selves for self-care! Loved that last question about how to “recover” after a session with a client with a heavy diagnosis.

Henrietta L,

LPC
