What Do Mindfulness Scales Measure? Expectation Effects Examined
There are several mindfulness questionnaires that address different factors involved in mindfulness. However, do they really measure changes in level of mindfulness over time or are they susceptible to the placebo effect? The aim of this study is to assess different mindfulness instructions on self-reported questionnaires, and determine whether simply using the label "mindfulness" on a task acts to improve self-reported mindfulness, as well as other wellbeing measures.
I was born and grew up in Iran. I possess more than 5 years of progressive experience in the field of mental health. My professional history includes positions such as Project Manager, Project Assistant, Psychologist, and Counsellor. Most recently, my responsibility as a Teaching Assistant , match the qualifications I am gaining. I assisted in the successful completion of productive projects in my field of study. In the future, I would like to have this chance to continue my academic research.
