Table 3 Mindfulness for Depression following SCI

Discussion

Hearn and Finlay (2018) evaluated the effectiveness of an 8-week online mindfulness program compared to pain psychoeducation among persons with SCI. Participants in the treatment group found significant reduction in symptoms of depression, anxiety, pain unpleasantness, and catastrophizing compared to the psychoeducation group at post treatment and 3-month follow-up.

Conclusion

There is level 1b evidence that online mindfulness programs can help reduce symptoms of depression post SCI (Hearn & Finlay 2018).

  • Online chronic pain based mindfulness programs help reduce symptoms of depression among persons with SCI.
