Integrating Mindfulness-Based Empirically Supported Treatments into Evidence Based Practice


A dissertation submitted to the School of Behavioral and Applied Sciences in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree Doctor of Psychology

The common elements approach is a growing means of implementing EBPP and tethering clinical decision making to the evidence base. The goal of this dissertation is to discern the common elements of the mindfulness-based empirically supported treatments (MB-ESTs) to better inform clinical practice. This work extends and expands on the original work of Fielding (2009) on this topic, with a firm rationale based on prior common elements studies. In the current study, there will be two primary changes; 1. The methodology is being revised, and; 2. The most recent manuals and research developments will be included. This dissertation contributes to the mindfulness scholarship because it offers an opportunity to further validate and derive the core constituents of effective mindfulness-based treatment. From this study of the common elements of the MB-ESTs, benchmarks may be derived for clinical considerations for mindfulness-based evidence based practice
