Multiple regression analysis was used to examine the research hypotheses.

In addition, maladaptive self-compassion was a positive predictor of secondary traumatic stress and explained 12% of the observed variance in this component (R Square = 0.12). Furthermore, maladaptive self-compassion and clinical competency were positive and negative predictors of quality of life burnout component, respectively, and totally, explained 22% of burnout (R Square = 0.22).
