Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine the comparative effectiveness of two technology-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programs (one via video/teleconference and one via a smartphone app) for reducing worry, anxiety and/or related mental health effects of stress in members of identified underserved communities, which were highly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Clinical Trial Description

The purpose of this randomized controlled study is to examine the comparative effectiveness of two technology-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programs (one via video/teleconference and one via a smartphone app) for reducing worry, anxiety, and/or related mental health effects of stress in members of identified underserved communities, which were highly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants will be randomly assigned to a teleconference MBSR program, a MBSR smartphone app program, or a waitlist control group. Each intervention includes participation in a 9-week (8 sessions plus an introduction) mindfulness intervention that consists of instruction and daily practice. Questionnaires and semi-structured interviews will be administered at mid-intervention, post-intervention, and one-month and three-month follow-up points. It is hypothesized that participants in the two intervention groups will show measurable and sustained improvement in the primary outcome, worry, as well as in the secondary outcomes, anxiety and related mental health effects. It is further hypothesized that the smartphone app mindfulness intervention will show similar effectiveness to the teleconference mindfulness intervention. ;
