Mental Health of UK University Business Students: Relationship with Shame, Motivation and Self-Compassion
Kotera, Yasuhiro; Conway, Elaine; Van Gordon, William
Journal of Education for Business, v94 n1 p11-20 2019
There is growing awareness of mental health problems among UK business students, which appears to be exacerbated by students' attitudes of shame toward mental health. This study recruited 138 UK business students and examined the relationship between mental health and shame, and mental health and potential protective factors such as self-compassion and motivation. A significant correlation between each of the constructs was observed and self-compassion was identified as an explanatory variable for mental health. Shame moderated the relationship between self-compassion and mental health. Integrating self-compassion training into business study programs may help to improve the mental health of this student group.
