ROCHA, Luiz Fellipe Dias da; FALCONE, Eliane Mary de Oliveira  e  HERNANDEZ, José Augusto Evangelho. Does self-compassion mediate the relation between perfectionism and psychopathological outcomes?. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2022, vol.34, n.1, pp. 15-33. ISSN 0103-5665.

This research aims to investigate the mediating role of self-compassion in the relationship between perfectionism and psychopathological outcomes. The sample was composed of 175 Brazilian undergraduate students, aged from 18 to 59 years old (M=25.97, SD=8.2). The participants filled out three self-report psychometric instruments: Clinical Perfectionism Questionnaire with only positive items, Self-Compassion Scale - Short Form (SCS-SF), and Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scales - Short Form (DASS-21). Preliminary correlations confirmed that the investigated variables were significantly correlated with one another. Subsequently, two simple mediation model analyses were run, and results supported a partial mediation of self-compassion between the two dimensions of perfectionism (i.e., perfectionistic strivings and perfectionistic concerns) and the global factor of DASS-21 (i.e., negative affectivity), separately. A serial multiple mediator model was also performed, and results demonstrated that, together, self-compassion and perfectionistic concerns fully mediated the relationship between perfectionistic strivings and negative affectivity. These findings are consistent with the possibility that self-compassion and perfectionistic concerns are underlying processes through which perfectionistic strivings may result in psychopathological outcomes.
