Abstract

Objective: This study explores whether social cognition and social functioning improve after a mindfulness-based social cognition training (SocialMIND). Methods: Thirty-eight outpatients with psychosis completed an assessment with social cognition (Eyes Test, Ambiguous Intentions and Hostility Questionnaire [AIHQ], and Hinting Task) and social functioning tasks (Personal and Social Performance [PSP] scale) before and after eight SocialMIND weekly sessions. Mean differences between timepoints were standardized and 95% confidence intervals were obtained with a paired samples t-test. Results: The scores of the Eyes Test (95% CI [.43, 3.32], d = .48), the Hostility Bias subscale (AIHQ) (95% CI [–.29, –.01], d = .44), and the self-care difficulties subscale (PSP) (95% CI [–.77, –.09], d = .45) improved after the intervention. Conclusions: and Implications for practice: The results of SocialMIND-8 are very promising in terms of developing comprehensive rehabilitation programs. Further trials must address its effectiveness against a control group during longer follow-up periods.
