A Pilot Study and Randomized Controlled Trial of the Mindful Self-Compassion Program - Neff - 2012

A Pilot Study and Randomized Controlled Trial of the Mindful Self-Compassion Program - Neff - 2012 | Mindfulness Research | Scoop.it

Objectives
The aim of these two studies was to evaluate the effectiveness of the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program, an 8-week workshop designed to train people to be more self-compassionate.

 

Results
Study 1 found significant pre/post gains in self-compassion, mindfulness, and various wellbeing outcomes. Study 2 found that compared with the control group, intervention participants reported significantly larger increases in self-compassion, mindfulness, and wellbeing. Gains were maintained at 6-month and 1-year follow-ups.

 

Conclusions
The MSC program appears to be effective at enhancing self-compassion, mindfulness, and wellbeing.

Meditation Makes Us Act with Compassion

Meditation Makes Us Act with Compassion | Mindfulness Research | Scoop.it

A new study suggests mindfulness meditation can help us overcome the "bystander effect.

 

In the study, Paul Condon and Dave DeSteno of Northeastern University and Gaelle Desbordes of Massachusetts General Hospital assigned people with little or no meditation experience to one of two eight-week meditation classes, or put them on a wait list for a class. One class was a mindfulness meditation class geared toward focusing and calming the mind. The other covered similar terrain but also discussed compassion and suffering.

Special Issue on Mindfulness Neuroscience | Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience

Special Issue on Mindfulness Neuroscience | Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience | Mindfulness Research | Scoop.it

From Editorial by Yi-Yuan Tang and Michael I Posner: 

Mindfulness neuroscience is a new, interdisciplinary field of mindfulness practice and neuroscientific research; it applies neuroimaging techniques, physiological measures and behavioral tests to explore the underlying mechanisms of different types, stages and states of mindfulness practice over the lifespan. Mindfulness-based meditation (MBM) or mindfulness-based intervention (MBI) has been a hot topic in psychology, neuroscience, health care and education in recent years (Chiesa and Serretti, 2010;Holzel et al., 2011), and publications have been rapidly growing from only 28 in 2001 to 397 papers listed in ISI during 2011. Many studies indicate the positive effects of MBM or MBI and researchers explore the mechanisms (Lutz et al., 2008; Tang and Posner, 2009; Chiesa and Serretti, 2010; Holzel et al., 2011; Tang et al., 2012a). However, the mechanisms of mindfulness practice are still poorly understood.

 

To improve the understanding of mindfulness mechanisms, we began a special issue on mindfulness neuroscience in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (SCAN) in the fall of 2010 and invited more than 20 leading research laboratories in this field from all over the world. In this special issue, we include 12 peer-reviewed empirical articles using neuroimaging to address neural mechanisms and clinical issues in mindfulness neuroscience. The articles in this special issue offer a sample of the cutting-edge discoveries being made at the frontier of mindfulness neuroscience.
