Why It Works

Research shows that self-compassion is linked with all kinds of benefits, including decreased anxiety and depression, and increasing motivation to improve!

For example, one study examined students who perceived a recent midterm grade as a failure. Results showed that students with higher self-compassion were more likely to cope in healthy, emotion- focused ways rather than with avoidance strategies (Neff, Hsiech, & Dejitterat, 2007).

Because of these findings, an entire program, the Mindful Self-Compassion training program, has been developed. One very recent study found that students in clinical and health psychology who completed the eight-week training reported greater self-compassion, mindfulness, and psychological well-being. However, those results were only found for those students who reported being committed to the program and adhering to the practices (Ramon, Gomez-Martinez, Antonio, & Jimenez, 2019)!
