Abstract
The aim of this study was to explore experiences of a group-based mindfulness intervention for patients with psychosis, changes in mindfulness and acceptance after this intervention and possible connections with practice between sessions. Earlier studies have shown promising results with mindfulness-based interventions for patients with psychosis. Our study included five participants of a total of twelve in the treatment group. The group received an eight week course in mindfulness, modified for psychosis. The participants were assessed at baseline and after finishing the program. The measures used were Five Facets of Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) and Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II). The participants of the study were given... (More)

The participants of the study were given forms for daily registration of practice between the group sessions. The participants were interviewed about their experiences of the course after finishing, and evaluated the course’s meaningfulness on a VAS-scale. The results showed minor improvements in acceptance and mindfulness for the two participants who had been practicing, one participant showed reliable change in the FFMQ wholescale and on the subscale non-reactivity. The interview and VAS-scale showed a high level of satisfaction regarding the perceived value, usefulness and meaningfulness of the course. (Less)

Syftet med denna studie var att utforska upplevelser av en mindfulnessbehandling i grupp för psykospatienter, förändringar i mindfulness och acceptans efter behandlingen och möjliga samband med övande mellan sessionerna. Tidigare studier med lovande resultat för mindfulnessbaserade interventioner för människor med psykossjukdomar har gjorts. I vår studie deltog fem deltagare av totalt tolv i behandlingsgruppen. Gruppen gick en åtta-veckor lång mindfulnessbehandling, modifierad för psykos. Baslinjemätning gjordes samt uppföljande mätning
efter avslutad behandling. Mätinstrument som användes var Five Facets of Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) och Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II). Deltagarna fick arbetsblad för daglig... (More)

Deltagarna fick arbetsblad för daglig registrering av övande mellan sessionerna. Deltagarna intervjuades efter avslutad behandling och utvärderade behandlingens meningsfullhet på en VAS-skala. Resultaten visade på små förbättringar avseende acceptans och mindfulness hos de två deltagare som hade
övat, varav en deltagare visade reliabel förbättring på FFMQ totalskala och på subskalan ickereaktivitet. Intervjun och VAS-skalan visade att deltagarna upplevde behandlingen som värdefull, användbar och meningsfull i hög grad (Less)
