Abstract

Objectives

Future-oriented coping and self-compassion have demonstrated promising benefits for psychological well-being, but the effects of self-compassion interventions have not been adequately examined in Chinese samples. Moreover, the role of self-compassion in enhancing future-oriented coping remains unclear. This study aimed to test the effects of a group-based self-compassion intervention on future-oriented coping and psychological distress with a randomized controlled trial using a sample of Chinese college students.

Methods

A total of 69 participants were randomized into an intervention group (N = 32) and a waitlist-control group (N = 37). Self-compassion (including positive and negative self-compassion), future-oriented coping (including proactive coping and preventive coping), and psychological distress (depression, anxiety, and stress) were assessed at the baseline, postintervention, and 1-month follow-up.

Results

The intervention group evidenced an increase in self-compassion and future-oriented coping as well as a decrease in depression and stress compared to the control group. The enhancement of proactive coping played a mediating role in the intervention’s effects on depression and stress.

Conclusions

This study provided evidence regarding the effects of self-compassion intervention on future-oriented coping. Future studies can further investigate the role of proactive coping as a mechanism of change in self-compassion interventions.
