Borrowing from ideas developed by Joan Halifax, Ph.D., Strong Back, Soft Front involves building further understanding of the importance of self-compassion in our work as counselors and supervisors. Joan Halifax utilizes Buddhist wisdom to help us (whatever religious or spiritual tradition we follow) develop practices that cultivate and can uphold universal values like compassion, generosity, wisdom, and peace.
Increase skills for self-compassion by exploring the fundamental nature of work (not knowing and curious exploration),
Develop their own sense of calmness and balance,
Building and maintaining healthy boundaries.
