Background and Objective: The history of psychology is full of concepts evolved to upgrade and improve therapies and mental health. The Compassionate Focused Therapy (CFT) model is rooted in the concept of self-compassion in modern psychology. The purpose of this research is to study the effectiveness of CFT on depression, anxiety, and rumination of depressed patients according to their self-compassion trait.

 

Materials and Methods: This study is designed as experimental pretest-posttest with an equivalent control group. Nineteen depressed patients with available sampling were selected from a psychiatric clinic and randomly divided into two groups. The experiment group participated in 12 sessions of Compassion Focused Group therapy (CFT). All participants were assessed by Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II), Anxiety Scale (AS), Rumination Scale and Self-Compassion Scale (SCS) at the beginning, final session and two month after the intervention (follow-up study). Data were analysis by ANOVA and independent samples t-test with SPSS 18.

 

 

 

Results: According to data analysis, depression and anxiety of the experiment group significantly decreased in the follow-up study (p<0.05). In addition, the interaction between intervention and self-compassion was significant on the rumination.

 

 

 

Conclusion: This study showed that CFT could be an effective therapy on depression and anxiety of depressed patients. In addition, people who had higher levels of self-compassion benefited more from our intervention and their rumination decreased. On the other hand, people who had lower level of self-compassion experienced increased rumination.
