Half Day Tutorial on Measuring Mindfulness Behaviorally: Onsite and Online Data Collection with jsPsych

AbstractThis half day tutorial will introduce participants to breath counting, a recent innovation in mindfulness research methodology that offers the first opportunity to collect a relatively direct behavioral measure of mindfulness (Levinson et al., 2014). This tutorial will review the basics of mindfulness practice before providing attendees with the knowledge, skills, and tools required to implement breath counting procedures in their own research. The widespread adoption of this quantitative measure could positively impact the field by offering a more straightforward and transparent methodology that would improve the overall consistency of mindfulness research across studies and between investigators.
