    Title:Development of a self-compassion focused cognitive behavioral program
    Project summary:The effectiveness of a cognitive behavioral intervention focused on self-compassion was examined in the present study. The self-compassion scale(Neff, 2003) translated into Japanese demonstrated the same six-factor structure, adequate internal consistency , and correlation with mental health measure(Study 1). A 7-session Compassion focused therapy(CFT) treatment program was developed and carried out during 7weeks(Study 2). Participants with low self-compassion were recruited in the Psychology classes of university and randomly assigned to either treatment or control group. The CFT treatment group showed significantly higher self-compassion and self-esteem and lower self-critical thoughts, trait anxiety, shame, and depression. The same CFT program was carried out for a community sample of low-self-compassion, and the effects of the program was evaluated(Study 3).
