Mindfulness, a practice which originated in the Buddhist tradition, was introduced in the west in the 1960’s and has since been well integrated into Western medicine and psychology. The talk will begin with a brief history of mindfulness and introduce three areas of empirical research; correlational research and the associations between mindfulness and different indicators of psychological health; the effects of mindfulness-oriented interventions; and laboratory-based, experimental research on the immediate effects of mindfulness inductions on emotional and behavioral functioning. The audience will have the opportunity to experience Mindfulness and to share their experiences, which will be followed by an open discussion.
