There has been significant progress in research aimed at understanding the role of self-compassion in improving the well-being of adults. However, to the best of our knowledge, few empirical studies have examined the relationship between self-compassion and multiple aspects of well-being in adolescents, especially among those from the South-East Asian region. This research, therefore, has two main goals: 1) to examine the psychological outcomes associated with self-warmth and self-coldness in Vietnamese adolescents; 2) to explore the interaction between self-warmth and self-coldness in predicting Vietnamese adolescents’ well-being. The results of a multiple regression analysis provide the evidence that both self-warmth and self-coldness showed significant predictive power in Vietnamese adolescents’ well-being. Moderation analysis carried out using the PROCESS macro for SPSS indicated that self-warmth significantly moderated the link between self-coldness and perceived stress. These findings have significant implications for the promotion of school-based well-being interventions in Vietnam in particular, and the South-East Asian region in general.
