Kristin Neff has been studying the positive impacts of self compassion for over a decade. Her research was the first of its kind—revealing that self compassion leads to healthy habits, lowers anxiety and depression, and supports more satisfying relationships. In addition to her academic work on the subject, she is also the author of the book Self-Compassion. Kristin offers workshops on self compassion worldwide, helping people learn to be more self compassionate in daily life.
Kristin Neff is joined in conversation by practicing clinical psychologist and CIIS Assistant Professor of Psychology Michael Klein. This is a special opportunity to learn more about Kristin’s life, work, and explorations of the power found in generating kindness toward ourselves as imperfect humans.
