Western psychology has recently begun to study selfcompassion, a construct from Buddhist thought (Neff, 2003a). Initial empirical work indicates that individuals who are more
self-compassionate tend to have greater life satisfaction, social connectedness, emotional intelligence, and happiness and less anxiety, depression, shame, fear of failure, and burnout (Barnard & Curry, 2011; Mills, Gilbert, Bellew, McEwan, & Gale, 2007; Neff,
Hsieh, & Dejitterat, 2005; Neff, Rude, & Kirkpatrick, 2007; Williams, Stark, & Foster, 2008).
