Abstract:
Objectives: This study aimed to explore the extent to which self-conscious emotions are expressed, to explore any associations with adverse health outcomes and to compare self-conscious emotions in individuals with COPD to healthy controls. Methods: A two stage mixed-methods study design was employed. Interviews with 15 individuals with COPD informed the choice of questionnaires to assess self-conscious emotions which were completed by individuals with COPD and healthy controls. Results: Five overarching themes were abstracted: grief, spectrum of blame, concern about the view of others, concealment and worry about the future. The questionnaires were completed by 70 patients [mean(SD) age70.8(9.4) years, FEV1%pred 40.5(18.8), 44%male] and 61 healthy controls [mean(SD) age62.2(12.9) years, 34%male]. Self-conscious emotions were associated with reduced mastery, heightened emotions and elevated anxiety and depression (all p<0.001). Individuals with COPD reported lower self-compassion, higher shame and less pride than healthy controls (all p≤0.01). Conclusion: There is a need to increase awareness of self-conscious emotions in individuals with COPD. Therapies to target such emotions may improve mastery, emotions and psychological symptoms
