It’s countdown to one of my favorite holidays, and the last thing I want to pass on to you is a half-hearted bulleted list of Thanksgiving Do’s and Don’ts. (Alright, here’s a Thanksgiving Do for you: Relax, savor and enjoy. It’s gonna be okay.)
Instead, I’ve got a special treat for you: an interview on self-compassion with one of the leading experts on the topic, Chris Germer, PhD, clinical psychologist and instructor at Harvard Medical School, and author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion: Freeing Yourself From Destructive Thoughts and Emotions. Dr. Germer and pioneering researcher Kristin Neff, PhD co-created The Mindful Self-Compassion Program, a training available to both the general public and clinicians.
