Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)


Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week course on mindfulness practice and stress reduction developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979. MBSR helps participants draw on their own inner resources and actively engage in caring for themselves to find greater balance, ease, and peace of mind. Over 18,000 people have completed the MBSR program since its creation.

The program was founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD at the Stress Reduction Clinic of UMass Medical School and described in his book Full Catastrophe Living. The technique was originally developed for use in hospitals with patients suffering from painful, chronic, or disabling conditions. It was found that following participation in an MBSR program, participants' levels of anxiety and depression decreased and their sense of well-being increased. Extensive research has shown that the MBSR program can be beneficial to anyone, regardless of their state of health.
