What Is Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)?
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an evidence-based program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Kristin Neff, PhD and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, PhD, MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.
Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it's easier than you think.
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It's a courageous attitude that stands up to self-criticism, self-isolation, and self-absorption. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
