This registration is for June 7th and June 14th workshop.  Part 1 and Part 2 attendance is required for full credit.

Self-acceptance means accepting ourselves for who we are at this very moment. It means relating to ourselves as we would to someone who we love and care deeply for. When we accept ourselves, we give ourselves permission to be human; to fail, to make mistakes, and to learn and grow. We accept our weaknesses rather than feeling somehow less because of them. Likewise, we accept our strengths, but do not feel superior because of them. Self-acceptance means that you allow yourself to be as you really are. This workshop will provide education about the ways we measure ourselves as counselors, prompt self-reflection and small group discussion as you work toward the ultimate form of self care - self acceptance!

Participants will be able to:

1. Learn the sailboat metaphor and begin to use as a framework for self improvement. The goal of this sailboat metaphor is to offer a simple and multi-faceted perspective on the self. The metaphor attempts to address human functioning from a holistic perspective, taking into account the many factors, both positive and negative, that influence well-being.

2. Understand self-acceptance as a psychological concept defined as an individual's acceptance of all of their attributes, positive or negative. Often as counselors, we are overly focused on our perceived weaknesses, which can lead to harsh self criticism and judgment. When we're self-accepting, we embrace every part of ourselves, not just the “positive” things!

3. Practice and improve self-acceptance. Through small group activities and self-reflection, counselors will begin to practice self-acceptance as unconditional. True self acceptance is more about rating our behaviors rather than ourselves. Self-acceptance is unconditional—you can recognize weaknesses, but still fully accept yourself.
