Symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions have increased significantly and dramatically worldwide during the COVID-19 crisis. Fortunately, developing mindfulness – the capacity to pay attention to present-moment experiences with an open heart and mind – and self-compassion – the capacity for awareness of our suffering and a desire to alleviate such suffering – can help us navigate difficult emotions and clarify our values. In this presentation, Dr. Shadi Beshai will discuss concepts and practical applications of mindfulness, compassion, and other evidence-based techniques to managing psychological distress.
