Mindfulness based interventions (MBIs) are becoming increasingly popular in clinical and non-clinical settings. The last two decades have witnessed mounting research in the field and the implementation of MBIs in various healthcare, educational and organisational settings. Despite this progress, research advances are sorely needed in studying the mechanisms of change. The study of therapeutic mechanisms of change is complex and perplexing, yet important as the understanding of mechanisms of change is the path toward improved treatment. In this Bootcamp, we will discuss the promise of MBIs, along with the methodological challenges in measuring and identifying the mechanisms of change. 

The workshop will present an introduction to the field and a set of three interdisciplinary talks around these themes. There will opportunity for questions and discussion. All are welcome!
