The current research aimed at examining the level of self-compassion and the level of psychological resilience among mothers with mental disabilities in the Gaza governorates. It also aimed at exploring the relationship between both self-compassion and psychological resilience with the study sample. The study sample consists of 500 mothers with mental disabilities in the governorates of Gaza, frequenting 16 rehabilitation centers for people with disabilities in Gaza; their ages ranged between 19-54 years. Their average age was 33.48 years, with a standard deviation of 8.35 at the lowest age of 19 and the highest age of 54. The study was based on two measures: The self-compassion scale and the psychological resilience scale, which the researcher prepared. The results of the study indicated that the level of both self-compassion and psychological resilience occurred within the high level, and it was found that there is a positive (direct) correlation between the total degree of self-compassion and its sub-dimensions with the total degree of psychological resilience and its sub-dimensions.
