Developing self-compassion in the workplace - Public Sector

This paper outlines a research study investigating The Self Compassion at Work Programme. The aim of the study was to examine the effects of a novel brief self-guided online intervention in a public sector sample. The programme draws on the three core components of self-compassion as defined by Neff (2003) - self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness. 190 public sector staff were assigned to an intervention group or a control group (who received the intervention after the study was conducted). The results suggest the programme was effective in increasing public employees’ self-compassion and mental wellbeing and decreasing their perceived stress and burnout.
