About the Author

Kristin Neff is currently an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. She is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion almost twenty years ago. In addition to writing numerous academic articles and book chapters on the topic, she is author of the book Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself. In conjunction with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, she has developed an empirically supported training program called Mindful Self-Compassion, which is taught by thousands of teachers worldwide. They co-authored the Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook and Teaching the Mindful Self-Compassion Program: A Guide for Professionals. Her newest work focuses on how to balance self-acceptance with the courage to make needed change. In June 2021, she will publish Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive.

"In this brilliant new book, Kristin Neff empowers women to combat patriarchy by shining a light on the true nature of compassion-both nurturing and fierce. She gives us potent tools for healing our own wounds and creating a more just, equitable and loving world." -- Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion"The authoritative guide to self-compassion for women by the field's pioneering founder and leading spokesperson. Through her science and compelling personal story, Kristin Neff shows us how and why to be kind to ourselves." -- Angela Duckworth, professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, author of Grit, and CEO of Character Lab"Fierce Self-Compassion encourages anyone who identifies as a woman to claim the strength that comes from caring for ourselves. Kristin Neff has put together a wonderfully woven book, powerfully bringing together the threads of current events, research, personal stories, and #MeToo to create an easy-to-follow guide for ultimate acceptance and action." -- Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Real Change"I am so grateful to Kristin Neff for doing the research, study, and teaching that it took to write a book as clear and profound as Fierce Self-Compassion. It's no small feat to weave threads from brain science, psychology, gender studies, history, and spiritual practice into a user-friendly guidebook for women who want to step boldly into their full selves--fierce and tender, kind and powerful, compassionate toward themselves and devoted to healing our world. I recommend this book to everyone." -- Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega Institute, and bestselling author of Cassandra Speaks and Broken Open
