Dr. Julie de Azevedo Hanks on Practicing Self-Compassion

Practicing self-compassion allows you to be aware, to tune in, to be mindful of your experiences, and to provide comfort and self-nurturing when you need it. According to psychotherapist Dr. Julie de Azevedo Hanks, author of the audiobook The Assertiveness Guide for Women, neglecting self-compassion is a mistake that many of us make; but, without self-love, we won’t be able to realize our full potential as human beings.

Today we’re sharing some helpful information from psychotherapist Dr. Julie de Azevedo Hanks, author of the popular audiobook The Assertiveness Guide for Women: How to Communicate Your Needs, Set Healthy Boundaries, and Transform Your Relationships. In this audiobook, Dr. de Azevedo Hanks helps you avoid rumination and regret when you’re unable to express yourself or even acknowledge your own needs, and learn to assert yourself and get what you want.​

Julie de Azevedo Hanks draws on her experience as a psychotherapist and clinical social worker, as well as extensive research, to show us how to…express our own voices. But at the same time that she provides us with tools for self-empowerment, she shows how we can do this without dis-empowering others. This is one of many things that makes this book special.
