Compassion and Well-being : Discovering the connection between compassion, self-compassion, gender and well-being in adolescents (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersöker om självmedkänsla, medkänsla samt kön har samband med välbefinnandet hos ungdomar, 12-15 år, i en liten kommun i Sverige. Hypoteserna som studien utgår ifrån är att höga värden på medkänsla och självmedkänsla predicerar höga värden på välbefinnande samt att tjejer mår sämre än vad killar gör. För att kartlägga vilka underliggande aspekter av välbefinnande som mättes i studien genomfördes även en faktoranalys. Resultaten visar på att samtliga hypoteser bekräftas och att de underliggande aspekterna av välbefinnande i denna studie var fysiskt, psykiskt och socialt välbefinnande samt en något svag fjärde aspekt som här kallas för Potentiell kognitiv mognad. Vidare diskuteras innebörden av resultaten ur ett bredare perspektiv och förslag på framtida forskning läggs fram.

Abstract [en]

This study examines by means of multiple regression analysis whether self-compassion, compassion, and gender is associated with the well-being of adolescents, 12-15 years, in a small municipality in Sweden. The hypothesis’s of the study assumes that high values of compassion and self-compassion predict high levels of well-being and that girls well-being is lower than boys’. To identify the underlying aspects of well-being measured in this study a factor analysis was also conducted. The results show that all hypotheses are confirmed and that the underlying aspects of well-being in this study were physical, mental and social well-being as well as a somewhat weak fourth aspect here called Potential cognitive maturity. Further on the implications of the results are discussed in a wider perspective and suggestions for future research is presented.
