Abstract [sv]

Intresset för self-compassions effekt på psykologiskt välbefinnande har ökat. Self-compassion är negativt associerat med självkritik, ångest och upptagenhet av och utvärdering av den egna kroppen. Self-compassion anses skydda mot de negativa effekterna av perfektionism. Eftersom self-compassion tros förbättra mental hälsa är det av vikt att undersöka vilka variabler som predicerar self-compassion. Denna studies syfte var att undersöka om variablerna kroppsuppfattning och perfektionism predicerade self-compassion. Självskattningsformulären Self-compassion Scale Short Form, Frosts´s Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale och Body Shape Questionnaire-8C administrerades till deltagarna. Resultatet beräknades med hjälp av hierarkiska regressionsanalyser. Resultatet påvisade att subskalan för perfektionism, Concern over Mistakes och Doubts about Actions, och kön signifikant predicerade self-compassion och förklarade en signifikant andel av variansen i self-compassion. Kroppsuppfattning predicerade inte self-compassion signifikant och förklarade inte en signifikant andel av variansen i self-compassion. Framtida forskning angående eventuell överrensstämmelse mellan perfektionism och kroppsuppfattning önskas.

Abstract [en]

The interest of the effect of self-compassion on psychological wellbeing has increased. Self-compassion is negatively associated with self-criticism, anxiety and obsession over and evaluation of the own body. Self-compassion is considered to protect against the negative effects of perfectionism. Since self-compassion is believed to improve mental health, it is important to investigate which variables that predict self-compassion. The aim of this study was to examine if the variables body image and perfectionism predicted self-compassion. The self- report questionnaires Self-compassion Scale Short Form, Frosts´s Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale and Body Shape Questionnaire-8C were administered to the participants. The result was calculated using hierarchical regression analysis. The result demonstrated that the subscale regarding perfectionism, Concern over Mistakes and Doubts about Actions, and sex significantly predicted self-compassion and explained a significant proportion of the variance in self-compassion. Body image did not significantly predict self-compassion and did not explain a significant proportion of the variance in self-compassion. Further research regarding potential concordance between perfectionism and body image is desirable.
