Kristin Neff
Research Interests

My research interests center on the psychological health benefits of self-compassion. Self-compassion entails self-kindness, feelings of interconnectedness, and mindfulness. I have developed various scales to measure the construct, and have conducted numerous studies on the topic. I have also created an empirically supported self-compassion training program called Mindful Self-Compassion. For more information see
