Self-Compassion for Parents: Nurture Your Child by Caring for Yourself - CMSC

A lovely and candid interview with Susan Pollak, author of "Self-Compassion for Parents" out this August!

Mara: How was being a parent yourself? Is there anything you wish you had known then that you have since discovered?

Susan: It was difficult. This book comes from my experience and struggles. I had a mindfulness practice, but mindfulness teachers generally don’t address parenting. Many of my meditation teachers didn’t have children and trained in a monastic tradition. I felt torn as I no longer had time for long, silent meditation, let alone retreats. I wish I’d known how to be kind to myself when I made mistakes, which I did constantly. I feared I was the only one who was doing it wrong.

by Mara Elwood CMSC Correspondent Parenting can be one of the planet's toughest jobs. In her forthcoming book, Susan M. Pollak, MTS, EdD, shares practical strategies and practices for the parenting journey, all based on a foundation of self-compassion and acceptance that we are enough, just as we ar...

"For decades, psychologists considered high self-esteem instrumental to a successful and positive life. But more recent self-esteem research has found it's not all it's cracked up to be."

A fascinating read from VICE featuring Kristin Neff, coauthor of "The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook."

How Abusers Use Body-Shaming To Control Their Partners

An important and resourceful article in Refinery29 about #coercivecontrol featuring Lisa Aronson Fontes, PhD, author of "Invisible Chains."

"One of the main hallmarks of coercive control is that the abuser tries to isolate the victim," she says. Even if you're just sending a lighthearted text regularly, communication can be immensely helpful. Although your instinct might be to tell your friend what to do, that can often backfire. "Rather, you should listen, express concern, and help them find information," Lisa says.

Degrading a partner's appearance or insisting that they lose weight are two common tactics abusers use in relationships.

Can You Reshape Your Brain's Response To Pain?

"Repeated exposure to psychological trauma, or deep anxiety or depression — especially in childhood — can leave a physical imprint on the brain that can make some people...more vulnerable to chronic pain." (Via NPR)

Changing how the mind reacts to pain can reduce the discomfort experienced, according to scientists who study brain pathways that regulate pain. A new type of therapy aims to enhance that effect.
