Kristin Neff's Summit Presentation:
Self compassion: A Key to Parenting
Kristin Neff introduced the self compassion concept in a very physical way.
Note: No handouts were given during this presentation.
Kristin Neff, Ph.D. is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on self-compassion, being the first one to operationally define and measure the construct over a decade ago. In addition to her pioneering research into self-compassion, she has developed an eight-week program to teach self-compassion skills in daily life, co-created with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, called Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). Her book, Self-Compassion.
She teaches us to be compassionate to ourselves in times of struggle. She also co-facilitates a Self-Compassion workshop which combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing with Dr. Brené Brown.
