Praise

“Alessandra Pigni makes clear that we need to treat ourselves humanely, just as we declare our main aim is to show humanity to others. I commend this book to you most warmly.”—Dr. Hugo Slim, Head of Policy for the International Committee of the Red Cross

“The radiance and vitality of Alessandra Pigni’s presence was infectious for me and for everyone I saw engage with her. The way she lived, and the way she died, modeled something beautiful for us all. I am grateful to have known her, however briefly.”—Krista Tippett, founder and host of On Being

“Alessandra Pigni has pioneered the field of care in action.  The Idealist’s Survival Kit is a godsend for every activist and aid worker.”—Michael Edwards, editor of Transformation

“With bracing honesty and piercing clarity, Alessandra Pigni shows us not only why, but also how, to practice self-empathy for the sake of efficacy.”— Irshad Manji, author of The Trouble with Islam Today and founder of the Moral Courage Project

“This book is a must-read—not only for those who work for NGOs on the front-line of humanitarian catastrophes, but all those who work in the helping professions throughout the world.”—Mark Williams, emeritus professor of clinical psychology, University of Oxford
