Experimental: Self-compassion intervention
Participants will be asked to recall and write (in an online text-box) about a parenting event during which they felt shame. They will then receive the online self-compassion intervention as detailed in Sirois, Bögels and Emerson (in revision). This involves parents in the experimental condition being given a validated set of instructions asking them to reflect on the event and write self-compassionate responses (see intervention).
Other: Online self-compassion intervention
Parents are asked to write in an online text box about a parenting event in which they felt shame. They are then given a validated set of instructions asking them to reflect on the event and write self-compassionate responses.
No Intervention: Control
Participants will be asked to recall and write (in an online text-box) about a parenting event during which they felt shame. Those in the control condition will be asked to re-read the account of the event and make notes about factual information (e.g. time of day, who was there, etc.). It should be noted that if the SCI is found to reduce state shame and increase state self-compassion, it will be offered to participants in the control group.
- Self-compassion Scale [ Time Frame: Change from baseline trait self-compassion through to study completion (anticipated one week). ]Outcome measure to assess trait self-compassion, which is defined as a trait in which people are mindful to emotions and respond towards themself with kindness and with a sense of common humanity, through difficulties, or following perceived failure/ personal shortcomings
- PANAS-X [ Time Frame: Change from baseline shame through to study completion (anticipated one week). ]Outcome measure to assess shame, defined as a self-conscious emotion, distinct from guilt as it is constructed of negative evaluation directed towards the self (as opposed to behaviours).
- Self-compassion items [ Time Frame: Change from baseline state self-compassion through to study completion (anticipated one week). ]An adapted outcome measure to assess state self-compassion, defined as self-compassion that can change in the moment.
- Perfectionistic cognitions Inventory [ Time Frame: Change from baseline perfectionistic cognitions through to study completion (anticipated one week). ]Outcome measure to assess automatic perfectionistic thoughts, defined as automatic thoughts to do with perfection. They are included in this study as potential moderator of the impact of the intervention on shame and self-compassion.
- Pediatric Inventory for Parents [ Time Frame: Change from baseline parental stress through to study completion (anticipated one week). ]Outcome measure to assess parental stress
