Mindfulness-based stress reduction is a group program that was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1970s to treat patients struggling with life’s difficulties and physical and/or mental illness (Kabat-Zinn, 2013)
Although it was initially created to aid hospital patients, it has since been used effectively by a wide range of people from all walks of life
MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
This is one of the best things about MBSR: it’s accessible for just about everybody
– Jon Kabat-Zinn
In fact, according to the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts, more than 24,000 people have taken advantage of the MBSR program the center debuted in 1979 (Center for Mindfulness, 2017)
