Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Healthcare professionals are vulnerable to stress overload and its manifestations. This study investigated the impact of MSC training on people working in healthcare. Overall self-compassion and subscale scores showed significant improvement. Participants indicated that self-compassion and positive mind states were integrated into their lives. OTs should integrate MSC as an intervention for their clients and themselves.
