AbstractAlthough stress has been widely acknowledged to link to psychosomatic dysfunctioning, the underlying mechanism that transmits the impact is not adequately investigated. This study examined self-compassion as a potential mediator that may explain the pathway from stress to depressive and somatic symptoms. Data in the present study were drawn from a baseline survey of 998 Chinese participants who enrolled in an intervention study on sleep disturbance in Hong Kong. Participants completed measures of perceived stress, self-compassion, depressive symptoms, and somatic symptoms. The results showed that stress was associated with depressive symptoms (r = .79, p < .01) and somatic symptoms (r = .47, p < .01). The path analyses showed that low levels of self-compassion mediated the association between stress and psychosomatic symptoms. Our findings provide insight into the pathway how stress affects psychosomatic symptoms. The intervention programs for stress management to improve psychological and physical functioning are recommended to consider self-compassion as a promising component in practice.
