Abstract

Mindfulness can be defined as paying attention to one's inner and outer experiences in a non-judgmental manner from moment to moment (Kabat-Zinn, 2003). This Psychiatry Issue Brief discusses mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), a curriculum developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School to help medical patients incorporate mindfulness practice into their daily lives to help them cope with stress, chronic pain, and other chronic medical conditions. Information on current research on mindfulness and recommendations for a mindfulness-based approach to wellness are included.
