Transcript: Final Thoughts ORAL PRESENTATION M80-Generic Research Skills Presented by : 2132019 2126984 963548 - Authors concluded that newly developed BMM programme JW2016 BMM (15 min a day for 7 consecutive days) was able to improve emotion processing, including emotion intensity, emotional memory, and emotional attention bias, without any negative effect on the emotions of healthy practitioners - They have identified some limitations to the study such as; failed to include a blank control manipulation, single-blind design, short duration of study, small sample size. - Researchers are argued possible positive benefits of the intervention consistently throughout the article and their stance in relation to the topic is towards this argument - No clear evidence of authors personal, political bias in the text but some evidence of cultural bias, some measurement indicators were bias to Chinese population. So we identified that it is needed to test this programme in wider population - This research is a recent one, published in 2019, and can be considered as a prospective solution for some practical limitations of Mindfulness Meditation interventions. Background A critique of "Brief Mindfulness Meditation Improves Emotion Processing", Wu et al,2019 - The study was on Brief Mindfulness Meditation practices, in an effort to identify an effective, convenient, safe, and standardized option to be used in clinical interventions - Brief Mindfulness Meditation could be effective in improving mood and emotional processing if standardized. - Many positive effects described in literature review including: decreased stress reactivity increased cognitive flexibility modulate emotional responses to negative stimuli decreased intensity of reactions from the autonomic nervous system recovery from affect-related psychopathology Strengths References + Results from this study were significant! unlike previous studies, that did not find a distinct/clear change. + Could this be a possible solution regarding clinical settings?/external settings? Exclusion/inclusion criteria: + avoided the impact of significant life events +avoided demand characteristics The Programme Limitations Brief Mindfulness meditation programme (JW2016 BMM) (15 min a day for 7 consecutive days) in this study that is both standardized and convenient for clinical settings. The time commitment, with most requiring 10-30 minutes daily Shortage of instructors Associated costs Wu, R., Liu, L.-L., Zhu, H., Su, W.-J., Cao, Z.-Y., Zhong, S.-Y., Liu, X.-H., & Jiang, C.-L.
