Mindfulness & Self-Compassion Study
The Mindfulness & Self-Compassion Study examines the potential association between childhood maltreatment and diminished self-compassion and mindfulness. Our current study investigates multiple types of child maltreatment, including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, and physical and emotional neglect. Our preliminary results suggest that emotional maltreatment (childhood emotional abuse and/or neglect) may be more likely than other types of abuse to negatively impact capacity for self-compassion.
