Compassion and Safety: A Workshop on Psychological First Aid w/ Rev. Steven Tierney

Saturday, January 13th, 1:30-3:30pm THIS EVENT HAS ENDED

As Buddhists we live with the two guiding principles, wisdom and compassion. It would be hard to find a family, workplace or spiritual community in today’s chaotic world where somebody is not dealing with depression, anxiety, addictive and compulsive behavior, isolation, etc. In our work together in this workshop we will NOT be trained to be therapists, to make diagnosis or to provide treatment. We will look at ways to increase the health, peace and ease of individuals we encounter who need our presence and support. Our goal is to have tools that increase the safety of the individuals needing help, the individuals offering help and the Sanghas and families in which they live.
