Abstract: (Show)

The authors perform a comprehensive meta-analysis based on an overview of 20 previous studies on mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), a meditation technique widely practiced in clinical settings for the treatment of stress and a variety of other health related conditions. While many more than 20 studies have been conducted on MBSR, the authors limited their meta-analysis to only the select few which met specific criteria (as described in the abstract. See link to the URL lower on this page). Results show that MBSR seems to be effective for a wide variety of conditions both for long term and short term periods. (Zach Rowinski 2005-03-05)
