Research

 

My research investigates the practical implications of the evidence for mindfulness-based interventions – how do we support implementation in main stream settings in ways that preserve the integrity of the approach whilst also adapting to fit the context. Specifically my research investigates the process of implementation in the UK health service; ways of assessing mindfulness-based teaching competence; the links between training level, teaching competence and participant outcome; and adaptations of existing models of delivery.  I value integrating social justice frameworks into the way I approach research. 

Dr Rebecca Crane is a member of the Clinical, Health, & Behavioural Psychology research group.
