The effectiveness of the program has been shown using a randomized controlled trial, and is now being taught all over the world. Dr. Neff is currently examining the effectiveness of the Mindful Self-Compassion program, including brief versions of the program to help address burnout among teachers and health care workers. Additionally, Dr. Neff is investigating the link between self-compassion and compassion for others.
