From her website: “Kristin Neff, Ph.D. is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on self-compassion, being the first one to operationally define and measure the construct over a decade ago. In addition to her pioneering research into self-compassion, she has developed an eight-week program to teach self-compassion skills in daily life, co-created with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, called Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). Her book, Self-Compassion, was published by William Morrow in April, 2011.”
Kristin is another person who I have been influenced by in my life and work and toward whom I feel gratitude.
Kristin’s website is full of resources. A few I will highlight here are (1) guided mindful self-compassion meditations she recorded and has freely offered for personal use; (2) an extensive compilation of self-compassion research to explore; (3) a self-compassion self-assessment tool.
