Kristin Neff Talks All Things Self-Compassion
Hello there CBT School friends and family,
This week we have a SUPER exciting episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast to share with you. If you are someone who is hard on yourself, this is THE episode for you. If you are someone who beats yourself up, this is the episode for you. If you need help being self-compassionate, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU!
I am so thrilled to share with you this week's podcast guest, Kristin Neff.
Kristin Neff is a pioneering self-compassion researcher, author of one of my favorite workbooks called The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, and is a wise and informative teacher of self-compassion. Kristin Neff developed an 8-week online program that teaches self-compassion skills to those who struggle in this area. The program, co-created with her colleague Chris Germer, affiliated with Harvard Medical School, is called Mindful Self-Compassion.
In this episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast, Kristin Neff addresses what self-compassion is and what it is not. I found this to be incredibly informative, especially for those who struggle to differentiate between self-compassion and self-care. Kristin Neff also addresses why some people struggle with practicing self-compassion, and specifically addresses the cultural and political aspects of this topic.
What I loved the most is how Kristin Neff explains whay self-compassion practices look like, feel like, and sound like. For those who need a most literal description of self-compassion, this conversation will be right up your alley. We also address the Yin & Yang of Self-Compassion and how we often forget the Yang component of Self-Compassion (listen to the full description).
Lastly, for those who find that their negative self-talk increases when they practice self-compassion, Kristin Neff addresses a concept called Backdrafting, and how this is a normal (and even positive) part of Self Compassion.
