Abstract
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a mindfulness-based intervention for people with psychosis.

Results indicated that there were also no significant differences in self-compassion, measured with Self-Compassion Scale - Short Form (SCS SF) between pre- and posttest. The study did however point in a promising direction with a potential use of a mindfulness-based intervention for people with psychotic disorders for improving the ability of mindfulness. Results should be interpreted with caution due to a small sample. (Less)
