Mindfulness-based interventions, which originate in Eastern philosophy, have become increasingly popular in Western clinical practice, and research shows that they can help in the treatment of a variety of disorders. This curriculum development project was designed to introduce those in the helping professions to mindfulness-based practices, increase their knowledge of specific mindfulness-based interventions, and provide them with referrals and resources. This curriculum identifies and explores four mindfulness-based interventions: mindfulness-based stress reduction, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. These interventions have been shown to be effective in the treatment of disorders such as: depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder.
