This week on the Well Woman Show, I talk to Kristin Neff, PhD, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin and a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion almost twenty years ago. She is the author of the book Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself and Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive.
What is self-compassion?
Why is it so hard to turn our compassion inward?
How do we find balance in our gender roles through self-compassion?
