Mindfulness Bibliography

The following bibliography was developed as a resource for mental health professionals, medical and psychological scientists, and others who wish to locate theoretical and empirical sources on the topic of mindfulness. The citations are based on PsycINFO, Medline, PubMed, and Cochrane database searches of peer-reviewed journal articles and books with publication dates between 1975 and March, 2009. The bibliography is organized into categories, each of which is listed in the table of contents on page 3. Categories begin with introductory remarks followed, in most cases, by a list of subcategories. Citations are grouped by year within subcategories. Because citations are cross-referenced, they may appear in two or more categories or subcategories.
