dc.description.abstractThis thesis will review the use of mindfulness meditation techniques in the clinical setting. Specifically, an in-depth literature review of the theory, research and clinical findings and applications of clinical approaches using mindfulness such as Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction in clinical applications for clients experiencing a variety of symptoms. Particular focus will be applied in sifting through the findings of studies that claim to have results that indicate that these mindfulness approaches are clinically effective. The thesis shall be grounded in a manuscript style, a non-empirical basis for a thesis which pulls together contemporary research and writings on the topic of mindfulness using a best practice analysis of mindfulness in clinical applications. “Best practice analysis” will be utilised as an analytic category related to theory and practice applications. Claims of the different mindfulness modalities will be considered, contrasted and compared to the actual results found in research studies. The effectiveness of mindfulness approaches in the clinical settings, including what situations it may or may not be best suited to, shall coalesce as an intended outcome of the research.en_US
