Resumen:
Web-Based Mindfulness Interventions for Mental Health Treatment: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Sevilla-Llewellyn-Jones, Julia; Santesteban-Echarri, Olga (1); Pryor, Ingrid; Alvarez-Jimenez, Mario Background: Web-based mindfulness interventions are increasingly delivered through the internet to treat mental health conditions. Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of web-based mindfulness interventions in clinical mental health populations. Secondary aims were to explore the impact of study variables on the effectiveness of web-based mindfulness interventions. Methods: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies investigating the effects of web-based mindfulness interventions on clinical populations. Results: The search strategy yielded 12 eligible studies. Web-based mindfulness interventions were effective in reducing depression in the total clinical sample (n=656 g=−0.609, P=.004) and in the anxiety disorder subgroup (n=313, g=−0.651, P<.001), but="" not="" in="" the="" depression="" disorder="" subgroup="" (n="251," p=".18)." similarly,="" web-based="" mindfulness="" interventions="" significantly="" reduced="" anxiety="" in="" the="" total="" clinical="" sample="" (n="756," g="−0.433," p=".004)" and="" the="" anxiety="" disorder="" subgroup="" (n="413," g="−0.719,"><.001), but="" not="" in="" the="" depression="" disorder="" group="" (n="251," g="−0.213," p=".28)." finally,="" web-based="" mindfulness="" interventions="" improved="" quality="" of="" life="" and="" functioning="" in="" the="" total="" sample="" (n="591," g="0.362," p=".02)" in="" the="" anxiety="" disorder="" subgroup="" (n="370," g="0.550," p=".02)" and="" mindfulness="" skills="" in="" the="" total="" clinical="" sample="" (n="251," g="0.724,"><.001). conclusions: results support the effectiveness of web-based mindfulness interventions in reducing depression and anxiety and in enhancing quality of life and mindfulness skills, particularly in those with clinical anxiety. results should be interpreted with caution given the high heterogeneity of web-based mindfulness interventions and the low number of studies included. submitted by mercedes contreras (mercedes.contreras@unir.net) on 2019-02-07t08:08:04z no. of bitstreams: 0; made available in dspace on 2019-02-07t08:08:04z (gmt). no. of bitstreams: 0 conclusions:="" results="" support="" the="" effectiveness="" of="" web-based="" mindfulness="" interventions="" in="" reducing="" depression="" and="" anxiety="" and="" in="" enhancing="" quality="" of="" life="" and="" mindfulness="" skills,="" particularly="" in="" those="" with="" clinical="" anxiety.="" results="" should="" be="" interpreted="" with="" caution="" given="" the="" high="" heterogeneity="" of="" web-based="" mindfulness="" interventions="" and="" the="" low="" number="" of="" studies="" included.="" submitted="" by="" mercedes="" contreras="" (mercedes.contreras@unir.net)="" on="" 2019-02-07t08:08:04z="" no.="" of="" bitstreams:="" 0;="" made="" available="" in="" dspace="" on="" 2019-02-07t08:08:04z="" (gmt).="" no.="" of="" bitstreams:="" 0="">
