Episode 6: The Science of Self Compassion
In this podcast I take you through the research and academic operationalisation of self-compassion, some of its associations and effects on individuals and their self-care as well as on health practitioners with compassion fatigue and burnout. I talk about how to weave language that models a self-compassionate attitude into your counselling and encounters with others and yourself. These supplementary materials contain exercises shown in experimental studies to induce self-compassion.
