MBSR Research

Embedded within an academic medical center, research holds a central place in our mission. 

Since 1979, the Center for Mindfulness has been dedicated to the ongoing investigation of the attributes and qualities of mindfulness and its role in health and health care through an active program of clinical and analytical research.  While our clinical program is a primary laboratory for this exploration, we also utilize randomized clinical trials to evaluate both the basic MBSR format for particular diagnoses and clinical populations, as well as the integration of mindfulness into existing treatment protocols.
