Online MBSR Study


The Daily Affect Project is a collaboration of the MindSpace Clinic and the Zuroff Research Lab at McGill University. This is the MindSpace Clinic’s third research collaboration with McGill, and the Zuroff Research Lab has been conducting clinical psychology research at McGill for many years.


About the Project

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and other Mindfulness Based Interventions have been widely shown to benefit participants on a range of outcomes including stress reduction, enhanced well-being and even some cognitive benefits. However, little is known about just what aspects of these programs have the biggest influence on change. The Daily Affect Project is designed to examine exactly this.

The online study consists of a series of questionnaires delivered over the course of the MBSR program. Most of the questionnaires are short, and they are related to your experience of the program (the group, your practice, etc.). Many people find that reporting on their experience makes them more mindful!

Participation takes just a few minutes per day and pays $56.
