Abstract

This study examined a research model depicting forgiveness (forgiveness of others, forgiveness of self) as a mediator in the association between compassion (compassion for others, self-compassion) and subjective well-being in a sample of 231 Filipino counseling professionals. The model was tested through path analysis using the structural equation modeling (SEM) approach. Data were collected using a self-report questionnaire administered to the participants. Results of the path analysis revealed an acceptable fit for the model. A test of indirect effects indicates that forgiveness of others mediated the association between compassion for others and subjective well-being, and between self-compassion and subjective well-being Theoretical and practical implications especially for Filipino counseling professionals are discussed. © 2019, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.
