Kristin’s work has received extensive media coverage, including The New York Times, MSNBC, National Public Radio, Reader’s Digest, and Psychology Today. She provides workshops on self-compassion worldwide, and has developed an eight-week program to help people learn to be more self-compassionate in daily life.

Kristin is also featured in the bestselling book and award-winning documentary The Horse Boy, which chronicles her family’s journey to Mongolia where they trekked on horseback to find healing for her autistic son.

She received her doctorate in Human Development from the University of California at Berkeley and is currently an Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to writing numerous academic articles on the topic, she is author of the book Self-Compassion, released by William Morrow in 2011.
