What is it about?

Mindfulness-to-meaning theory proposed that mindfulness practice enhances eudaimonic well-being. Considering alcohol-dependence as a result of hedonic dysregulation, a mindfulness-based intervention was administered that was found to improve the eudaimonic and general well-being of individuals with alcohol-dependence.

Why is it important?

The study presents the impact of a novel mindfulness-based intervention that would be useful to enhance well-being of individuals with various kinds of addictions. It will not only reduce clinical symptoms and manage relapse, but it will also keep the person happy and flourishing.


This is the result of our pilot study that tested the efficacy of our novel positive psychology intervention. I hope this will contribute to the literature on the impact of positive psychology interventions among clinical populations.
