First Published: 08 September 2015

Key Practitioner Message

  • MBIs are a useful addition to the armamentarium for the treatment of children and adolescents
  • The methodological rigor of the studies evaluating the impact of MBIs is improving
  • Acceptance commitment therapy and MBSR appear to fulfill the criteria for empirically supported therapy in young people
  • Further studies focusing on the process of change and mediators of positive outcomes are necessary
  • Publication bias is an important limitation in this area of research
