Abstract

Abstract  Introduction The aim of this study is to explore the correlation between childhood maltreatment types, self-compassion and mental health in married people. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive-analytic study 350 married male and female individuals residing in Tehran in 2013 were randomly selected using multi-stage cluster sampling and assigned to complete copies of inventories focused on self-reported child abuse, self-compassion and general health. Thirteen completed copies were excluded due to insufficient information whereupon 337 copies were reviewed. SPSS version 19, Pearsonâ��s Correlation, Linear and Multiple Regression were used to analyze the data. Results: There was a significant negative correlation between maltreatment and self-compassion (r = 0.521; p < 0.001), a significant positive correlation between maltreatment and general health (r = 0.306; p < 0.001). the findings from multiple regression analysis indicated that the subscales for physical harassment, emotional harassment and neglect were significant predictors of self-compassion. The neglect subscale contributed most to the explanation of self-compassion. Furthermore, the emotional harassment subscale alone was capable of predicting general health (p < 0.001). Conclusion: The findings indicated that the greater the childhood harassment, the smaller the adulthood self-compassion and that the greater the childhood harassment, the greater the adulthood syndromes of mental disease. Â
