Abstract

As mindfulness and its associated clinical interventions have continued to grow in popularity in recent years, there is a need for a consolidated source of empirically supported mindfulness-based research. Once gathered, reviewed, and summarized, the research was integrated into an open-access, free online resource. This web-based collection is accessible by mental health practitioners, clients in therapy, and the general public seeking research-based information on mindfulness. The final product is a public website summarizing core concepts of mindfulness, clinical interventions based on mindfulness, effectiveness for different clinical populations, and theorized mechanisms of change within these interventions. Additionally, this platform will provide links to supplemental resources to and a collection of guided mindfulness exercises. The information and exercises found within the site balance a research-guided focus with usability, regardless of experience with mindfulness-based practices and interventions.
