About this Episode

Self-compassion, as defined by Kristin Neff, is the practice of extending compassion to oneself in instances of perceived inadequacy, failure, or general suffering. This week, we’re sharing an archived episode in which a past student health promotion intern, Harisaa Selvanayagam, speaks with her professor, Dr Jim Perretta, about the importance of self-compassion and how to begin practicing it in our lives.
