Mindfulness and Relationship Health Study

The Mindfulness and Relationship Health Study is a small-scale longitudinal study of couples undergoing a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course. This study is a collaborative project between the Gordon Couples Research Lab and a certified mindfulness instructor and researcher in the University of Tennessee Department of Social Work. Currently, quantitative data has been collected from participants in three rounds of the MBSR course and qualitative interviews have been conducted with a subsample of these participants. Research using this data is currently underway.
