Dare to Rewire Your Brain for Self-Compassion

When Weiyang Xie first came to the United States as an international student, she was excited to pursue her dreams, yet filled with overwhelming insecurity and anxiety. In her journey to becoming a psychologist, she dared to be vulnerable and face her fears and shame head-on. These have turned out to be Weiyang’s most helpful resources in overcoming challenges. In this talk, she will share her ingredients of self-compassion that can help audience members overcome shame in their own lives, empower them to take risks, and lead them to self-empowerment and authentic living. Staff Psychologist, University Counseling Center at the University of Notre Dame This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
