Abstract

BackgroundWhereas interest in incorporating mindfulness into interventions in medicine is growing, data on the relationships of mindfulness to stress and coping in management is still scarce.
This report first presents a French validation of the Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory-short form FMI in a middle-aged working population.
Secondly, it investigates the relationship between psychological adjustment and mindfulness.

MethodsFive hundred and six non-clinical middle-aged working individuals rated themselves on the self-report French version FMI and completed measures of psychological constructs potentially related to mindfulness levels.

ResultsResults were comparable to results of the original short version.
Internal consistency of the scale based on the one-factor solution was .74, and test-retest reliability was good.
The one-dimensional solution as the alternative to the two-factor structure solution yielded suboptimal fit indices.
Correlations also indicated that individuals scoring high on mindfulness are prone to stress tolerance, positive affects and higher self-efficacy.
Furthermore, subjects with no reports of stressful events were higher on mindfulness.

ConclusionThese data showed that mindfulness can be measured validly and reliably with the proposed French version of the FMI.
The data also highlighted the relationship between mindfulness and stress in an adult population.
Mindfulness appears to reduce negative appraisals of challenging or threatening events.
