257: Navigating Life’s Challenges with Self-Compassion with Dr. Neff

Facing life challenges with self-compassion involves treating oneself with the same kindness and understanding as one would a good friend. Self-compassion can have a profound impact on mental health and overall well-being, filling a critical gap in mental health practices. Ultimately, self-compassion has life-changing potential, acting as a superpower, and dispelling misconceptions that it is self-indulgent or a sign of weakness.

Dr. Kristin Neff is a pioneer in self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on the construct over twenty years ago. She has been recognized as one of the most influential researchers in psychology worldwide. Kristin has written several bestselling books on self-compassion, co-founded the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, and creator of the online Self-Compassion Community.
