Being a human is hard. We all suffer, fall short, and have moments of deep pain. Self-compassion provides a way to approach yourself with more openness and care during these difficult times. It's like being your own best friend!

This workshop is formatted much like a class. Through lessons, written exercises, and meditations, SUU students learn practical ways to apply the 3 steps of self-compassion. It is a great place to learn skills with no pressure to self-disclose. Many students keep their cameras off and interact via chat if they have questions for the workshop leaders. We recommend that you attend a minimum of 3 consecutive weeks, and welcome you to attend as many as you want. 

Workshop space is reserved for SUU students. It is NOT open to benefits-eligible SUU employees. Others interested in self-compassion can explore the resources on

Biofeedback means "feedback from the body" and can be particularly useful in increasing our capacity to relax. 

Days: Asynchronous Workshop

DBT is an asynchronous group providing skills related to Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy concepts. Group members will learn about skills related to Core Mindfulness, Emotional Regulation, Distress Tolerance, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. The group format includes 30 minutes of video instruction (that can be watched at your convenience) and workbook skill assignments and personal insight and accountability challenges that take approximately 30 minutes. We recommend that group members commit to an hour per week for the group that can be accessed at your convenience.
The group facilitators offer "Drop-in hours" weekly where group members can access live zoom meetings with group facilitators to troubleshoot skill development and discuss the personal insight and accountability challenges.

Navigating Distress is a way to develop a more clear understanding of your concerns and learn some new skills to help cope with them. It is uniquely helpful because you receive the benefit of learning and practicing skills without feeling pressured to share deeply personal information. Participants respond privately to writing prompts instead of being asked to disclose personal information. Prior to the beginning of this workshop don’t forget to pick up a materials packet from the Health and Wellness Center.
