Research Study Findings: Mindfulness-Based Wellbeing Enhancement Programme (MBWE)

30 March 2024

Mindfulness for Wellbeing

The research, in collaboration with Temasek Polytechnic, evaluated the Mindfulness-Based Wellbeing Enhancement Programme (MBWE) for its effects on psychological wellbeing and related attributes, including intrapersonal and interpersonal mindfulness, emotional regulation, self-compassion, and compassion towards others.

The MBWE stands out from conventional Mindfulness-based programs (MBPs) by emphasising an appreciative approach, a novel form within the MBP spectrum aimed at enabling individuals to surpass mere baseline quality of life towards achieving a state of flourishing. This contrasts with the traditional restorative focus of MBPs, which primarily aim to restore individuals to a baseline level of wellbeing by addressing mental health concerns.

Key findings from the research include:

1. Significant improvements in:

  • Psychological Wellbeing

  • autonomy

  • environmental mastery

  • personal growth

  • positive relationships

  • purpose in life

  • self-acceptance

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Self-Compassion

  • Intrapersonal Mindfulness post-program

  • detachment from the mind,

  • body-anchored presence,

  • attention to and awareness of the other person, and

  • mindful responding

  • Interpersonal Mindfulness post-program

  • observing

  • describing

  • acting with awareness

  • non-judging

  • non-reactivity

2. Benefits were sustained at a 1-month follow-up, demonstrating the lasting impact of the MBWE program.

The results of the research will be documented and published in a scholarly journal.
