≪Organizer Abstract≫
Recently, increasing attention has been paid to the effectiveness of mindfulness practice in diverse domains, such as clinical psychology, industrial psychology, and educational psychology. The majority of such studies have focused on the beneficial effects of mindfulness practice. However, an equally important direction for research is to enquire into questions concerning the mechanism of effectiveness-that is, why and how mindfulness practice is able to bring about various effects.
This symposium will address the factors contributing to the effects of mindfulness practice. It will focus in particular on attention and acceptance as a mediator of intervention outcomes. The speakers will deal with interesting topics related to these factors, on the basis of their research/practice standpoints. The discussion among speakers will provide useful and helpful insights on leading mindfulness-based treatments as a facilitator. It will also offer suggestions for improvement of individual practice of mindfulness.
