"Emotion regulation is a hot topic these days. One of the under- lying factors in emotion regulation is self-compassion, or inner compassion. Just reflect for a moment, as Eileen Beltzner invites us to do in this book, how we feel when a loving person listens to us and comforts us when things go wrong in our lives. Self-compassion is the skill of doing that for ourselves, when we need it the most, and it can have a profound effect on our lives." - From the Foreword by Christopher K. Germer, Ph.D.
