Expertise: Dr. Neff’s research links self-compassion to mental health. She has successfully differentiated the construct of self-compassion from self-esteem. This line of research is highly cross disciplinary, drawing from fields of social and personality psychology, developmental psychology, and clinical psychology. Recently, Dr. Neff developed an eight-week program designed to teach self-compassion skills called "Mindful Self-Compassion." The effectiveness of the program is being evaluated using a wait-list control design. Following her doctoral training in the area of moral development and her postdoctoral training in the area of self-concept development, Dr. Neff’s research has focused on defining, measuring, and developing an intervention to teach self-compassion. According to Dr. Neff’s model, self-compassion involves showing kindness to oneself when experiencing suffering, framing one’s experience of imperfection in light of the shared human experience, and mindful awareness of negative thoughts and emotions. Dr. Neff was the first scholar to introduce the construct of self-compassion into the research literature. She operationalized the construct and created a scale by which it is measured.
