As you may know, I frequently teach grad students how to PMHNP. One of this year's students, the wonderful Kirstin Snyder, RN told me about an amazing class she took at UT which was taught by Kristin Neff. Dr. Neff literally wrote the book about self-compassion. I'm reading the book now, and many of you will probably be hearing from me about why you should read it too. However, in the meantime, I ran across this article from Shape Magazine. It features Dr. Neff speaking about self-compassion and even links to some excellent exercises and resources. Check it out.
