Abstract

The adolescent phase is full of various crises and challenges, resulting in many problems. Self-compassion, which is a compassionate attitude towards oneself, can be an alternative to dealing with problems. Individuals with low self-compassion tend to feel stress, depression, and anxiety so that it will have an impact on maladaptive behavior, one of which is Non-suicidal self injury (NSSI) as a coping strategy. This study aims to determine the relationship between self compassion and NSSI in Acehnese adolescents. The research design used was quantitative research method with incidental sampling technique, involving 60 Acehnese adolescents aged 12-19 years. Data collection in this study used the Self-Compassion Scale (SWD) and the Inventory of Statements about Self Injury (ISAS). The results of hypothesis testing analysis using Pearson Correlation with a significance value (p) = 0.137 (p>0.05). This shows that there is no significant relationship between self compassion and NSSI. The results showed that the level of self-compassion of Acehnese adolescents who had done NSSI was at a moderate level (60%), and low (35%), while the majority of NSSI behavior was carried out using more than three methods, and was often carried out as a form of emotional regulation (59.72%) and self-punishment (43.60%).
