Description

In today’s episode, I speak with both Dr. Christopher Germer and Dr. Kristin Neff. Christopher Germer, PhD is a clinical psychologist and lecturer on psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.  He co-developed the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program with Kristin Neff in 2010 and they wrote two books, The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook and Teaching the Mindful Self-Compassion Program. MSC has been taught to over 200,000 people worldwide. 


 


Kristin Neff is currently an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. She is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion nearly twenty years ago. She is author of the bestselling book Self-Compassion, and her newest book is Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive. 


 


We dive into the following and so much more: 


 


✅ What self-compassion is in their words


✅ How self-compassion is different from self-esteem 


✅ The steps to connect with yourself through the lens of self-compassion


✅ Why the idea of a “shared or common humanity” is so important in the work of self-compassion


✅ How they teach people this process
