Many studies are beginning to show not only the positive impact of having more compassion, but the effectiveness of techniques to improve it. Study explored the impact of loving kindness meditation on positive emotion and a wide range of well-being measures. Self-compassion was two to three times more predictive than mindfulness in explaining anxiety, depression, worry, and quality of life.
The study tested correlation, not causation: the study does not show that self-compassion can be as easily increased as mindfulness, and even if self-compassion can be trained, this study has not shown that this increase would actually increase quality of life.
Compassion (the compassion subscale of the dispositional positive emotion scales), defensiveness, cynicism, pessimism, negative affect, self-esteem, self-efficacy, loneliness, perceived support, and social power were compared against three measures of stress: arterial blood pressure, cortisol, and heart rate variability (across the two conditions).
Average number of meditation sessions per week was compared against general distress before and after the stress tests (30-item Profile of Mood States) and against IL-6 and cortisol levels.
Study wished to test the effectiveness of compassion cultivation training (CCT) for enhancing levels of compassion.

This study compared the role of self-compassion in predicting relationship success against self-esteem.
This study examined the effect of self-compassion on the well being of adolescents, as near all previous research had focused on college students or adults.
Study 1: Examines effectiveness of self-compassion and self-esteem in buffering against anxiety. 40 college students (38 females) completed a set of surveys, underwent the “Gestalt two-chair” exercise (Greenberg, 1983, 1992), and were then retested. The results are not suggestive of tai-chi as an effective method of increasing self-compassion. Study is a case analysis of three patients suffering from schizophrenia, all three of which showed improvement from loving kindness meditation (LKM), and one showing large improvement.
Better than the above study, which had only 3 participants, this study had 18 participants.

As a result, the effects of LKM could be because of the basic act of meditation, and not the specific meditation that LKM represents.
It’s possible the effects could degrade over time, although the trend from the study was the opposite. As the originator of the broaden-and-build theory, she holds a bias to confirm research which supports her thesis (like this study). The results suggest LKM to be just as or more effective than mindfulness meditation in improving quality of life.
A longitudinal study comparing the effects of mindfulness meditation against LKM meditation would be significantly more revealing. This in turn implies that compassion could effect neutral situations as well as supportive ones.

Between weeks 8 through 10, subjects participated in a stress test and completed questionnaires. Specifically, the there was a strong inverse correlation between number of meditation sessions and outcome variables (e.g. Meditation time was correlated with less fear of compassion for others, but no other measures. Rosenberg, Joel Finkelstein, Emiliana Simon-Thomas, Margaret Cullen, James Doty, James Gross, Philippe Goldin (2012).
Given the myriad biases which plague case analyses, this study can be taken as a sign that LKM may work, and deserves rigorous investigation, not that it actually does. LKM improved patient symptoms, but 18 participants is still extremely small, and the lack of a control is concerning.

On the other hand, self-esteem was correlated with increased dominance and verbal aggression, leading to the possibility that self-compassion is a safer, more effective version of self-esteem. While statistically significant, the control also increase their levels of compassion by 2 to 7%.
