Talk at Action for Happiness in London, UK

July 26, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Come join me as I give a 90 minute talk sponsored by the Action for Happiness movement in London.

This talk will present theory and research on self-compassion, which a burgeoning empirical literature has shown to be powerfully associated with psychological wellbeing. It will distinguish self-compassion from self-esteem, and discuss research indicating that self-compassion is a more powerful and effective motivational tool than self-criticism. A brief self-compassion practice will also be taught that can be used in daily life.
