We will have networking and a short business meeting from 6-7 PM. From 7-8 PM, we are pleased to have Dr. Dori LangevinPsy.D. present to us on “Attending to the Suffering of Others with Wise Compassion.”

Dr. Langevin earned an M.A. in creative arts therapy (1977) and Psy.D. in clinical psychology (2010). She was invited to teach Buddhist meditation by Tara BrachPh.D. in 2002 and graduated from the 4-year Theravada Buddhist Teacher Training in 2010 led by Jack Kornfield and Joseph Goldstein. She worked as a clinician and Program Director in addiction treatment centers in California from 1980-1994. Dr. Langevin combines her psychologist training and addiction treatment experience with Buddhist psychology, her own meditation practice, and meditation teacher experience to support people in understanding the causes of their suffering and in learning pathways to moment-by-moment freedom from suffering. She calls the process “Interactive Reflection.” She guides people with a variety of present-centered practices including mindfulness of body, emotions, and thoughts, and the heart practices of loving-kindness, self-compassion and compassion for others, appreciative joy, and equanimity to work with untangling emotional suffering as well as cultivating beneficial emotions and mindstates.

Course Objectives are that participants will walk away with the ability to:
--Articulate the differences between empathy and compassion.

--Identify how Buddhist teachings on compassion are relevant to issues of professional self-care such as compassion fatigue and empathic distress.

--Utilize self-compassion meditation either for themselves or with clients.

Chapter 1 has applied to the Washington State Psychological Association (WSPA) for approval of one hour (1 CE) of Psychological Continuing Education Credit for attending Dr. Langevin’s presentation. WSPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists. Workshops offered by WSPA are recognized continuing education activities under the rules adopted by the Washington State Examining Board of Psychology and the Licensed Counselors Advisory Committee. WSPA maintains responsibility for the program.
