The Trust and TrustPARMA are excited to partner with Dr. Lisa Cromer for this FREE informative webinar, Compassion and Equanimity as Skills for Surviving and Thriving when School and Career are an Uphill Climb. Mindfulness is well-known to be effective as a stand-alone or adjunctive treatment for managing stress and anxiety. This talk focuses on compassion as a specific form of mindfulness.
Compassion involves cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills that not only reduce negative mind states but which also cultivate positive mind states and social connectedness. Compassion predicts psychological health and well-being. Equanimity, the ability to remain calm even during positive and negative stress, is explained as an achievable mind state for not only surviving school and career challenges and difficulties, but also for being a source of joy and freedom from suffering.
Examples will demonstrate how to use compassion and equanimity in graduate school and during one’s early professional career. This approach can be useful for mentors, clinicians, and anyone wanting to learn about mindful approaches for resilience and resistance to adversity.
