Eureka Alert Publishes on MD Research

EurekAlert! is a nonprofit news-release distribution platform operated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) as a resource for journalists and the public. Recently they published a piece on the findings of Herchu, Somer, Feldman and Soffer-Dudek’s study “Mindfulness meditation and self-monitoring reduced maladaptive daydreaming symptoms: A randomized controlled trial of a brief self-guided web-based program.”

The study results showed a significant improvement in both treatment groups: a significant positive change was noted in 80 percent of the participants. The improvement occurred almost immediately among individuals who completed the entire program, while the process was more gradual among those who received the partial program. However, the two groups showed equal significant gains at a six months follow-up. Around one-fourth of the participants who completed the entire intervention program showed completely recovered from the condition following eight weekly sessions; all their indices measuring daily functioning were normal.
