Radical Self-Compassion (RSC) is an online adaption of the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program. It is a skill-building program to cultivate the skill of self-compassion and is specifically designed for those struggling with eating issues and body shame.
RSC teaches core principles and practices of MSC that will enable you to respond to difficulties with food, eating, body shame and other challenges in their lives with kindness, care, and understanding. RSC includes practices adapted from MSC as well as additional material to help you make peace with food, your body and yourself. RSC is based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer.
With radical self-compassion, we’re better able to recognize and to face when we’re overstressed, overworking, overeating, overanalyzing, or overreacting, and to take a kinder and more sustainable approach to life’s challenges.
Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, reduced anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think. Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that’s required is a shift in the direction of your attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves. Self-compassion also provides the support and inspiration required to make necessary changes in our lives and reach our full potential.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone—even those who didn't receive enough affection during childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It's a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption.
