Abstract or Summary
  • This study was an initial exploration of the role self-compassion plays in adherence to physical therapy programs. Self-compassion refers to treating oneself with the same kindness and understanding that is usually shown towards loved ones when they are facing difficult life experiences, and has been associated with factors that could facilitate adherence such as self-motivation and coping skills. Fifty-six physical therapy patients (26 male, 30 female) and five physical therapists (4 male, 1 female) participated in the investigation. A practitioner’s observation of self-compassion for each patient was positively related to rehabilitation adherence. Additionally, patients’ stages of rehabilitation moderated this relationship. That is, the correlation was significant if patients had completed more than 70% of their rehabilitation, but no significant correlation was observed for patients who had completed less than 70% of their rehabilitation. This study suggests that practitioner observed self-­‐compassion might play a role in physical therapy compliance. Key Words: motivation, rehabilitation, compliance, injury, healing
