Claudia Hammond

Using the latest research from psychology and neuroscience, and working in collaboration with the University of Sussex’s world-leading Kindness Institute, Claudia Hammond takes us on an eye-opening tour of kindness: what constitutes kindness (it’s not just one thing), effective strategies to build more of it into our lives and the benefits of being kind.

You are kinder than you think, but we could all be kinder still – with enormous benefits for our personal mental health and wellbeing. ‘The Keys to Kindness: How to be Kinder to Yourself, Others and the Planet’ sets out a prescription for a kinder life that you can adapt to your own circumstances, and how to apply these lessons to ourselves, others and the planet.

Claudia Hammond is an award-winning writer, broadcaster and psychology lecturer. She is the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s ‘All in the Mind’. She has been awarded the President’s Medal from the British Academy, the British Psychological Society’s Public Engagement & Media award, Mind’s Making a Difference award and the British Neuroscience Association’s Public Understanding of Neuroscience award.

She is the author of ‘Emotional Rollercoaster’, ‘Mind over Money’, ’Time Warped’ (which won the Aeon Transmission award and the BPS Best Popular Science Book award) and ‘The Art of Rest’.
