Abstract (Summary)

The present study examined the stress-reducing effects of a mindfulness training intervention on college students. The participants were 28 students enrolled in a community health science course at California State University, Long Beach. Participants participated in a mindfulness training and learned three mindfulness based activities. Perceived stress was assessed pre- and post-intervention. Participants completed a follow-up survey 2 weeks after the training. A dependent t-test was used to assess the changes in stress levels. There were significant changes in perceived stress with a medium to large effect size. Limitations and recommendations for future research are discussed.
