Numerous studies have documented the positive effects of mindfulness practice on the alleviation of various kinds of psychological distress, but a dearth of evidence remains related to the validity of common mindfulness instruments in Indian populations. The present study aimed to explore the higher-order construct of mindfulness in India and evaluate the psychometric properties of the widely used 39-item Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire-English-language version (FFMQ) on a sample recruited ...

BACKGROUND: Prototype analyses of well-being have identified central characteristics and prototypicality for New Zealand teachers, lawyers, adolescents, and work well-being of nurses. What has not yet been explored is the broad construct of well-being in intensive care nurses. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To identify intensive care nurses' conceptions of general well-being and investigate whether their general well-being is prototypically organized. DESIGN: Prototype analysis. METHODS: Three linked stud...

Accurate distinction between state and trait anxiety is necessary for assessment and monitoring of individual anxiety levels over time and developing effective interventions to reduce anxiety. Generalizability theory (G-theory) is a suitable method to distinguish between state and trait and to evaluate reliability of test scores and sources of measurement error in the assessment of affective conditions. We applied G-theory to the widely used 40-item State and Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) compl...

While evidence supports the feasibility of online mindfulness training (MT), the effect of this approach on cognition remains unclear. The present study investigated changes in cognition following a newly developed 6-week videoconference-delivered MT programme on cognitive function in two groups. The first group (n=17) had two baseline assessments prior to MT (3 weeks after Group two (n=15)) to allow for evaluation of practice and learning effects. Four participants from each group were excluded...

Depression and anxiety are common sequelae of stroke, occurring in at least one-third of patients. This study evaluated the acceptability and feasibility of providing mindfulness training (MT) to stroke survivors with the aim of reducing depression and anxiety. Following a six-week one-on-one MT course, 17 participants were interviewed. The median age of participants was 71, and 10 participants were male. This paper focuses on participants' expectations of the MT and their views about its impact...

Mindfulness is an evidence-based treatment for depression but has never been rigorously tested with stroke survivors with depression. This feasibility study examined several issues relevant to a potential trial of a mindfulness-based intervention (MBI) for improving mood after stroke. In 2017–2019 in New Zealand, we recruited 20 stroke survivors with low mood to undergo a 6-week, one-on-one MBI course delivered by an occupational therapist experienced in MBIs. Pre, post, and 4-week follow-up ass...

Mindfulness, positive affect, and compassion may protect against psychological distress but there is lack of understanding about the ways in which these factors are linked to mental health. Network analysis is a statistical method used to investigate complex associations among constructs in a single network and is particularly suitable for this purpose. The aim of this study was to explore how mindfulness facets, affect, and compassion were linked to psychological distress using network analysis...
