Mindfulness and Addictive Behaviors

Mindfulness and Addictive Behaviors | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"This study examined the relationship between mindfulness and various addictive behaviors (i.e. alcohol abuse, pathological gambling, sex addiction, and compulsive buying) in a community sample. A short but comprehensive composite measure of mindfulness was constructed...... Inverse correlations emerged between the nonjudgmental attitude and alcohol abuse, pathological gambling, and sexual addiction, ......The findings of this study support the use of mindfulness as a treatment for substance abuse and suggest the possible usefulness for the treatment of other addictive behaviors."

Curator comment: "Mindfulness", a state of nonjudgmental self-awareness, has become a popular topic in the field of behavioral health, and this article continues that trend.  The authors used the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Inventory (CSBI) to measure the sexual dimensions of their study.  It would have been nice if they had shown more consistency by avoiding using the phrases "sex addiction" and "sexual addiction" interchangeably and if they had defined the term other than via the CSBI (which does not use either term).  The "Composite Mindfulness Questionnaire" (which is included) is interesting.


Note: This article is currently available in its entirety through Open Access, which is always nice for those without university or other institutional access.

"We examined the psychometric properties of the Hypersexual Behavior Inventory......in a sample of young men who self-identified as gay or bisexual and assessed its association with unprotected receptive anal intercourse partners and occasions.........In light of our findings, we discuss the importance of reexamining the theoretical assumptions of hypersexual behavior and propose HIV prevention strategies that may reduce young GBM's vulnerability to HIV infection."
