Abstract

Se investigaron las propiedades psicométricas de la Escala de Autocompasión (Neff, 2003), en una muestra de 315 estudiantes de medicina de universidades de Lima (Mujeres = 58%, Hombres = 42%). Mediante análisis factoriales exploratorios y confirmatorios se logró confirmar la estructura de seis factores del instrumento original, y se reportaron evidencias de validez convergente y discriminante, a partir de las correlaciones con el afecto positivo y negativo, la satisfacción con la vida y los síntomas depresivos. Además, la consistencia interna de las seis subescalas fue adecuada. Se discute la importancia de la consideración de la autocompasión en el contexto de estudiantes de medicina.
