Finding Goldilocks: How Much Information Is “Just Right” In Pregnancy Immunisation Decision Making? @ UCRH Lecture Theatre
May 18 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Presented by Dr Kerrie Wiley

Influenza and pertussis can have significant effects on mothers and infants. Influenza infection during pregnancy is associated with increased risk of hospitalisation, with pregnant women infected with 2009 H1N1 shown to be 5 times more likely to be hospitalised than the non-pregnant population. Pertussis is potentially fatal to young infants, with over 5,000 cases in children <5 years old reported in NSW between 2013 and 2017. The infant’s mother is the source in around 39% of infant cases, where the source can be identified. Immunisation against these diseases during pregnancy is recommended, however vaccine uptake in pregnancy has been shown to be sub-optimal. Research has also shown that healthcare provider recommendation is key to vaccine uptake, however the providers themselves often require information and tools to support them. We sought to develop an evidence-based decision tool for immunisation in pregnancy which is tailored to women’s individual information needs.

Mindful Self-Compassion Skills: A 5 day Self-Experiential Training @ Byron Bay Community & Cultural Centre
Jun 5 – Jun 9 all-day

Workshop presenters: James Bennett-Levy and Tina Gibson

The Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) Program, designed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff, has rapidly gained acceptance internationally as a profound way to learn to cultivate the skills of self-compassion – for therapists and community members alike. MSC is an empirically validated program, which can be offered as a 5 day intensive or an 8 week/3 hr week program.

Our Byron workshop is the 5-day intensive version. It will be co-taught by James Bennett-Levy and Tina Gibson. Both Tina and James are experienced Australian MSC teachers, who time and again have witnessed the – at times revolutionary – value of MSC for the wellbeing of workshop participants. James and Tina combined successfully to teach the program in South Australia in 2016, and are now offering it in Byron in 2017. Click here for a summary of some of the feedback from South Australia.

MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult emotions with kindness and understanding. Christopher Germer, one of the designers of this program, notes “Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing – being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions – fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt – in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.”

MSC is through and through a self-experiential program. Learning the skills of self-compassion from the inside out. As a springboard to learning to treat oneself with warmth and kindness rather than harshness and self-criticism, there are few more powerful programs than MSC. While there are clear implications of the program for work with clients for therapists to reflect on, MSC is focused fairly and squarely on oneself.
