Abstract

In the regard of the literature, moderator role of perceived social support on the relationship of self-compassion and medical adherence of Type to Diabetic patients was examined. It was found that total adherence score was positively correlated with satisfaction with life ( r = .18, p < .05 ) and with perceived social support ( r = .29, p < .01) which means that higher levels of total adherence sores was associated with higher levels of satisfaction with life and with perceived social support. Overall model was found to be significant F (4,114) = 6.06, p <.01, R2 = .11. However interaction was not found to be significant (p > .05) so there was no moderation effect. Moderator role of perceived social support on the relationship of self-compassion and the level of satisfaction with life of Type 2 Diabetic patients was examined. Overall model was found to be significant [F (3,115) = 8.12, p < .001, R2 = .16] however, the interaction and moderation was not found to be significant.
