Cultivating Unconditional Self-Worth


Have you ever quietly wondered to yourself, “Am I enough?” That insatiable drive toward status, success, appearance, and achievement often arises from values imposed by our upbringing and culture which can stand in the way of an honest experience of inherent self-value. These feelings of low self-worth can harm our mental health, increase depression and anxiety, and lead to negative coping behaviors that reduce our well-being.

It is time to see ourselves in a different and more accurate light. Join us for this noontime webinar to dismantle conventional ideas and re-envision the meaning of self-worth. You will learn powerful tools and insights informed by ancient philosophy on the true meaning of inherent value and discover the importance of protecting our minds from negative self-messaging.

We will discuss the relation of low self-worth and social justice and the additional messages of unworthiness experienced by people with minority identities. By defining what really matters to you, you can construct and employ personalized methods for increasing your experience of your inherent value and develop behavioral tools for practicing self-worth.

This class will be recorded and a temporary link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants, which will be active for one week. Stanford University benefits-eligible employees must attend the live session in order to receive BeWell incentive points.

Instructor: Meag-gan O’Reilly, PhD, is a lecturer in the Stanford School of Medicine. Outside of Stanford, she is the co-founder and CEO of Inherent Value Psychology Inc., her private practice in downtown Palo Alto that provides DEI consulting, workshops, trainings, and international speaking engagements, as well as group and individual clinical services for Silicon Valley professionals.

Class details are subject to change.

Winter quarter registration opens on January 4
