Alison Murdoch: Kindness and Wellbeing in the Caring Professions
Thursday, 10 September⋅4:00 – 4:30pm
A conversation hosted by Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds with Alison Murdoch (Jamyang Buddhist Centre London)
If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete – Jack Kornfield
Why do some of the kindest people find it so hard to be kind to themselves? It’s hard to give from an empty cup. Yet people in the caring professions often pay far too little attention to their own wellbeing – leading to stress, a loss of motivation and energy, and even burnout. Alison has more than thirty years’ experience of supporting staff in frontline caring organisations and will introduce this important topic via a mixture of research, discussion and practical tools.
