Self criticism measure

Self-criticism is a common feature in many people’s day-to-day lives and can contribute to various mental health issues. To effectively address harmful self-criticism, it is crucial to carefully explore how individuals respond to these thoughts, as their response often determines the impact of such thoughts. The Forms of responding to self-critical thoughts scale (FoReST) is a tool that examines both self-critical thoughts and an individual’s psychological flexibility in relation to those thoughts. The FoReST scale is a 9 item measure that examines unworkable actions and mindful acceptance in relation to self critical thoughts.

By using the FoReST scale, we can gain valuable insights into how individuals navigate self-criticism and enhance their overall well-being.
