What about “Mindfulness” in Mindfulness-based Intervention?

Micka Moto Sanchez

Abstract


This paper will discuss a few such positive effects of the Buddhist-based meditation techniques, commonly referred to as “mindfulness-based intervention” (MBI), on various physical symptoms and illnesses. Among them, to specifically focus on, are: chronic pain, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which have been reported to respond well to the so-called “mindfulness” training programs. One aim of this paper, then, is to demonstrate the documented effectiveness, as well as limitations, of such techniques employed by contemporary psychotherapy.
