This research is to investigate the relationship between selfcompassion    with    pain    intensity,    catastrophizing,    self-efficacy    of    pain    and    affect    in    women    with    musculoskeletal    pain. Materials and methods: The Investigation procedure was according to correlational descriptive ones.For this purpose, among women with musculoskeletal pain in Isfahan who were referred to orthopedic clinics and private clinics in winter 2016, 180 persons were selected in accordance to available sampling method.The participants responded to the research tools including Self-compassion, pain multidimensional, pain catastrophizing, pain self-efficacy,    positive    and    negative    affects    and    demographic    questionnaires.    The    data    was        analyzed    using    Pearson    correlation    coefficient    and    hierarchical    regression    analysis. Findings: The    results    of    pearson    correlational    analysis    indicated    that    there    was    a    significant    negative    relationship    between self-compassion and pain intensity, pain catastrophizing and negative affect in the subjects. Also a positive    relationship    with    pain    self-efficacy    and    positive    affect    was    found    as    the    effect    of    self    compassion.    The    results of hierarchical regression indicated a 10.5 percent of pain intensity variance after age and painful area control, a 14.4 percent of pain catastrophizing variance after education and marriage control, a 5 percent of pain self-efficacy    variance    after        age    control,    a    10.3    percent    of    positive    affects    and    25.2    percent    of    negative    affects    after    education control in accordance to self-compassion. Conclusion: The results of this study indicate that self-compassion with the control of demographic variables predicts    pain    intensity,    catastrophizing    pain,    self-efficacy    of    pain    and    positive    and    negative    affects.
