Self-compassion and psychological well-being

26 November 2018

This is an invitation to take part in a research study from the University of Southampton that explores if self-compassion (self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness) helps in responding to emotions after early shaming experiences. We hope this research will help to identify if self-compassion improves responses to difficult emotions after shaming experiences and promotes psychological well-being


Ethical approval

This study has been approved by the ethics committee of the University of Southampton. Ethical approval no: 32032

About the researcher

Hi, I am Jordan Farr, a Trainee Clinical Psychologist from the University of Southampton. As part of my research, I am interested in exploring the role of early shaming experiences and how this impacts on our emotions and how we respond to such emotions.

The current study aims to investigate if self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness help cope with such experiences and reduce feeling overwhelmed by difficult emotions. Your participation would be greatly appreciated and you will have the opportunity to win one of four £25 Amazon vouchers available

If you have any questions about the study, please do not hesitate to email me on jf1n16@soton.ac.uk
