Dialing Back the Inner-Critic: Compassion and Kindness in Parenting

Virtual Event

Are you ready to reduce the limiting beliefs of inner-critical thoughts? Are you ready to rid the perfectionist tendencies that loop in your brain and your body? Parents have continued to show up through the most grueling and uncertain times over the past few years. Many of us are feeling the repercussions. Do you find yourself weary, stressed, or uninspired? Are you beating yourself up and criticizing yourself as a parent?

Two helpful things to remember: 1) you are not alone, and 2) it doesn’t have to be this way.

Learn how to recognize the compassionate voice within you rather than letting the critical voice be the driver in your head. Research shows that meeting yourself and others with compassion and kindness is the antidote to fatigue, burnout, and stress. Lisa Baylis—parent, educator, author and school counsellor—will speak about the importance of care and compassion for ourselves at a time where compassion fatigue and burnout are happening far too often. As an educator and parent, Lisa understands the importance of prioritizing our well-being as a way of modelling wellness for our families.

Lisa Baylis has been sharing well-being strategies for the last 20 years. A natural-born connector with an innate ability to make people feel valued and heard, she is a teacher, a counsellor, a speaker, and a mother. Lisa published the best-selling book “Self-Compassion for Educators” and is the creator of the AWE Method — Awakening the Wellbeing for Educators — which merges self-care, mindfulness, and self-compassion.

Lisa has a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. She has taught internationally and locally. Much of her vast teaching experience was gained in classrooms across British Columbia as a school counsellor. Currently, she is the Education Director for the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, the non-profit organization created by Drs. Kristin Neff and Chris Germer to spread self-compassion around the world.
