Kristin Neff: How to Build a Culture of Self-Empathy & Self-Compassion

Dr. Kristin Neff is an Associate Professor in Human Development and Culture, Educational Psychology Department, University of Texas at Austin. During Kristin’s last year of graduate school in 1997 she became interested in Buddhism, and has been practicing meditation in the Insight Meditation tradition ever since. While doing her post-doctoral work she decided to conduct research on self-compassion
 – a central construct in Buddhist psychology and one that had not yet been examined empirically. Kristin is author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind. "More and more, psychologists are turning away from an emphasis on self-esteem and moving toward self-compassion in the treatment of their patients—and Dr. Neff’s extraordinary book offers exercises and action plans for dealing with every emotionally debilitating struggle, be it parenting, weight loss, or any of the numerous trials of everyday living."
