Abstract

Purpose of review

The goal of this review is to provide an overview of current findings on mindfulness interventions (MIs) for use with breast cancer survivors. We highlight new research and identify several theoretical and conceptual issues worthy of further consideration.

Recent findings

To date, randomized controlled trials have shown the efficacy of MIs in mitigating adverse psychological, behavioral, and biological outcomes in breast cancer survivors, at least in the short term and in comparison to usual care or wait list controls. Research is now moving towards evaluating the effectiveness of MIs, determining whether MIs produce lasting benefits, and identifying mechanisms of action.

Summary

Preliminary research supports the feasibility and efficacy of MIs for use with breast cancer survivors. There are gaps in our understanding, however, of how and for whom MIs are most effective. Future research to enhance current methodologies is warranted.
