Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an 8 week program initiated by Kristin Neff Ph D and Christopher K. Germer PhD. Designed to cultivate and recover compassion for the self and the ability to self-soothe in challenging times. Participants report increased self-care and health-related behaviours, reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression, improved self-acceptance and emotion tolerance, and life satisfaction. Research also suggests MSC helps reduce burnout, or caregiver fatigue.
