Self-Awareness, Self-Compassion, and Cultural Competence: Implications for Social Work Education and Practice
Gottlieb, Mara
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, New York University
The objective of the present study was to examine the relationships among the constructs of self-awareness, self-compassion, and cultural competence within the NYU MSW student population, as measured by three separate scales. An anonymous Qualtrics survey containing the three scales and five demographic questions was sent via university e-mail to the entire student body, with a 33% rate of return (N = 376). Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) through AMOS 20 and SPSS 21 regression resulted in identifying a positive correlation between self-compassion and self-awareness, a moderating effect of self-compassion on the relationship between self-awareness and cultural competence, and a positive correlation between self-compassion and cultural competence. A correlative relationship between self-awareness and cultural competence was not identified. Implications for and limitations of the study are discussed, with recommendations of directions for future theory, pedagogy, practice, and research.
