Abstract

This research aimed to describethe self-compassion of street children in Medan City regarding demographic data,namely gender, age, and education. Subjects involved in this study were 300 street children, aged 12-18 years and attended both formal and non-formal education. The sample of this study was selected by using incidental sampling technique. The data was collected through the spreading of self-compassion questionnaires. The self-compassion scale was developed based on self-compassion theory by Kristin Neff, composed of three components: self-kindness vs. self-judgment, common humanity vs. isolation, and mindfulness vs. over-identification. The data were processed by using One Way ANOVA statistical analysis. The results showed that self-compassion of street children differ significantly regarding education, where subjects with non-formal education have the highest self-compassion compared to subjects with elementary, junior high, and high school / vocational education. Whereas regarding gender and age, the results showed that self-compassion of street children does not differ significantly.
