Abstract

Objectives

This study examined the efficacy of a brief online self-compassion training in reducing explicit and implicit self-criticism, pain endurance, and inclination to engage in self-harm among non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) engagers and ideators.

Methods

Sixty-three adults reporting presence of self-injurious thoughts or behaviors in the past year were randomly assigned to either a one-week self-compassion training group or a waitlisted control group.

Results

As compared to the control group (n = 33), the training group (n = 30) yielded significantly greater reduction in explicit self-criticism after a single session (p = .013, partial η2 = .101) and significantly greater reduction in self-criticism (p = .001, partial η2 = .170), and pain endurance (p = .004, partial η2 = .130), as well as the explicit inclination to self-injure (p = .051, partial η2 = .063) after the one-week training. The reduction in explicit self-criticism (p = .006, partial η2 = .155) and inclination to self-injure (p = .04, partial η2 = .105) was maintained at the two-week follow-up.

Conclusions

The findings provide suggestive evidence supporting the use of an online self-compassion training in reducing self-criticism and pain endurance in NSSI ideators. This study supports the potential use of brief online trainings in order to improve accessibility and adherence of treatment especially for individuals suffering from highly stigmatized conditions such as self-harm.
