Abstract

The purpose of the research was to discover whether self compassion and interpersonal mindfulness predict forgiveness in adulthood. In this study, data were gathered from 547 participants, 345 of whom were female (x̄=80.72, sd=16.51) and 202 of whom were male (x̄=81.60, sd=17.33) and between the ages of 22 and 65. “Personal Information Form”, “Heartland Forgiveness Scale”, “Self Compassion Scale”, and “Interpersonal Mindfulness Scale” are the measuring instruments. Multiple regression analysis was conducted on the data. According to a multivariate regression analysis, self compassion and interpersonal mindfulness are predictors of forgiveness. In addition, regression analysis revealed that self compassion and interpersonal mindfulness accounted for 39% of the overall variance in adult forgiveness. In light of the literature and study, the findings are interpreted and defended, and numerous recommendations are provided.
