This chapter reviews the effects of mindfulness training on psychological symptoms and syndromes in clinical populations and how to measure these. It reviews effects on depression, anxiety, psychosis, and chronic pain, either as general effects or as effects specifically targeted by the intervention. It also discusses dose–response relationships, long-term effects, side effects, and adverse effects. Finally, it considers the role of changes in trait mindfulness and rumination as explanations for these beneficial changes.

Keywords:   depression, anxiety, psychosis, rumination, mindfulness, dose–response
