Research talk by Brian Ostafin "Adding an anxiety-specific element to mindfulness practice for reducing anxiety: Pilot study and investigation of mechanisms”, organised by the Interdisciplinary Mindfulness Centre Groningen.
Brian Ostafin (Psychology, BSS, RUG). Dr. Ostafin’s research investigates mechanisms through which mindfulness interventions may help to alleviate psychopathology (with a focus on addiction, anxiety, and depression), including: i) automatic cognitive and affective processes, assessed with reaction time tasks, and ii) fear of uncertainty, assessed with self-report and threat conditioning tasks.
