Creator Stephanie A. Glaittli
Subject Mindfulness; self-compassion; resilience; therapists; MSMHC
Description Mindfulness, self-compassion, and trauma history have been studied for their association with resilience in numerous populations but little quantitative research has examined how these factors predict resilience in therapists. In this study, 67 practicing therapists were surveyed to examine the factors associated with personal resilience. This study used the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ), Self-Compassion Scale (SCS), Connor Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC25) and an adapted Family Health Questionnaire (Adapted FHQ) to assess the factors that promote resilience in therapists. Results indicated that mindfulness had a significant relationship with resilience in therapists, while self-compassion had mixed results necessitating further research. Personal Trauma did not have a significant relationship to therapist resiliency. This study discusses the implications for training, supervision, and client outcomes.
