The study measures relevant variables before and after a group therapy. Of the 18 patients participating, only 11 were able to be tested on both occasions due to time limit. The following tests are used: Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test, Wechsler Adult Inventory Scale-III, Trail Making Test, Controlled Oral Word Association Test, Colour Word Test, Beck's Anxiety Inventory, Beck's Depression Inventory, Quality of Life Inventory and Kentucky Inventory of Mindfulness Skills. The results showed a significant correlation as well as tendencies to significant correlations between improvement in cognitive functions and a perceived increase of psychological wellbeing. No significant correlations were found between improvement in cognitive functions and higher degree of mindfulness. The results also showed significant correlations between perceived increase of psychological wellbeing and degree of mindfulness. (Less)
