General Description

The Compassionate Attributes and Actions Scale (CAAS) aims to assess compassion on three directions: self-compassion (SCS), compassion to others (CTOS) or compassion received from others (CFOS). Each scale assesses one´s compassionate attributes and compassionate actions separately when dealing with difficult or painful situations.
