by Harrington, George E., III, Ph.D., Barry University, 2018, 236; 10750459
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this research study was to assess levels of mindfulness-based skills in counselors-in-training at the masters and doctoral level. By examining mindfulness levels within the counselor-in-training population, a reference point was established among counseling students with predictors of mindfulness-based skill levels. The research design was a cross-sectional survey approach, using the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (Baer et al., 2006) paired with a researcher developed questionnaire. Results yielded significant differences among facets of mindfulness and independent variables of age, perceived multicultural competence, knowledge of mindfulness, hours of formal training, current practice of mindfulness, and frequency of practice. Length of mindfulness practice, hours of formal training, and age were significant predictors of total mindfulness scores for the counseling student sample.
