Rudy Ruderman, MA, AMFT – Self Compassion for Men
Thursday, May 7th, 6pm - 7pm PST
For men, being stuck at home can be especially hard when activities that gave purpose, self-esteem, and an outlet to blow off steam are no longer available—when there is less to “do” and we are forced more to just “be” with family, partners, children, and ourselves. Male-identified people are invited to explore self-compassion as a way to find peace and fulfillment during this crisis.
