Abstract [sv]

Hög självkritik har en negativ effekt på psykiskt mående och självkritiska personer har svårare att ta till sig traditionell behandling som kognitiv beteendeterapi (KBT). Compassionfokuserad terapi (CFT) har visat lovande resultat för personer med hög självkritik. Denna studies syfte var att undersöka huruvida CFT i grupp var en effektiv metod för primärvårdsklienter med självkritik. En interventionsgrupp erhöll sex veckors CFT. Gruppens resultat jämfördes med en aktiv kontrollgrupp, som fick åtta veckors KBT, och två passiva kontrollgrupper utan behandling. Resultatet visade på en signifikant minskning av självkritik och en ökning i livskvalitet samt compassion för de deltagare som fått CFT. KBT-gruppen hade en signifikant ökning i livskvalitet men ingen förändring i självkritik eller compassion. Trots små urval och metodologiska brister så stärker studiens resultat den tidigare forskning som ger stöd för att CFT har en positiv effekt för individer med självkritik.

Abstract [en]

High self-criticism has a negative effect on psychological health and people who are self-critic have more difficulties benefitting from traditional treatment such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Compassion focused therapy (CFT) has shown promising results for people with high self-criticism. The aim of this study was to see if CFT as group therapy was an effective method in primary healthcare for people with self-criticism. An intervention group received six weeks CFT. The results from the intervention group was compared with an active control group, which received eight weeks CBT, and two passive control groups with no treatment. The results showed that the participants that received CFT had a significant reduction in self-criticism and improvement in life quality as well as an improvement in compassion. Participants that received CBT had a significant improvement in life quality but no change in self-criticism or compassion. Despite small group sizes and methodological shortcomings these results strengthen earlier research that support that CFT has a positive effect for individuals with self-criticism.
