    More and more, psychologists are turning away from an emphasis on self-esteem and moving toward self-compassion in the treatment of their patients—and Dr. Neff’s extraordinary book, Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind To Yourself, offers exercises and action plans for dealing with every emotionally debilitating struggle. On this episode, we’ll learn more about what self-compassion is, including what it isn’t, and why self-compassion works better than the high self-esteem we seem to always be chasing.
