The current study, comprised of two parts. The aim of the first part was to examine the relationships between maternal and paternal parental attitudes, guilt, shame, and -if any- their effects on self-compassion. 348 participants were included in the study. The paths between parental attitudes, guilt-shame, and self-compassion were analyzed through the employment of multiple mediation analyses. Both relationships of maternal and paternal acceptance/involvement with selfcompassion were mediated by guilt, and the relationship between maternal strict control/supervision and self-compassion was mediated by shame. The aim of the second part was to differentiate reactions and expectations of individuals according to their guilt and shame levels. For this purpose, 2 vignettes were presented to the v participants. Participants were group into four according to their guilt-shame levels. The obtained inquiry was analyzed qualitatively with Thematic Analysis. Accordingly, the emotional and behavioral reaction profiles and an overview of their expectations from others (in this thesis the focus was on the therapists) are provided. Results of both first and the second parts were discussed in the light of the literature. Moreover, strengths, implications, limitations, and suggestions for future studies were also mentioned.
