Resumen
Introduction and Objectives.
Mindfulness-based interventions might be equally helpful for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), with equal or better results than standard treatments. A systematic review is conducted to assess the efficacy and applicability of a Mindfulness Intervention for OCD symptoms.
Materials and Method.
Thirteen studies (2008-2020) were selected, from the bases PsycINFO, Scopus, EBSCO, Web of Knowledge, CINAHL and PSICODOC.
Results.
Seven studies obtained an improvement in symptoms compared to the control group, but only in 3 was this change related to differences in Mindfulness.
Conclusions.
The amount of methodological problems and the Mindfulness research premature state makes the exhibited results as inconclusive and more research, which include better methodological and clinical standards, is necessary.
