Kristin Neff is essentially the "creator" or founder of the term self-compassion, so she is an expert on this subject. She is a pioneer in Eastern psychology, such that she took several philosophical principles from Buddhism (East) and applied it to psychology (West). She speaks about self compassion in a four part series on youtube.
These videos are short and very informative. I also love that she makes mistakes and fumbles in the videos, but keeps going with a smile, which is the very essence of self-compassion. She breaks down each of the three components of self-compassion in a way that is very easy to understand and immediately applicable to your daily life.
