COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Name: An evaluation of a Mindfulness and Goal Setting Quality of Life Program and Questionnaire
Differences between the two intervention conditions: Condition 1 is a 2-day version of the mindfulness training section of the previously tested Mindfulness-based Quality of Life and Well-Being Program whilst Condition 2 is the full 2-day Mindfulness-based Quality of Life and Well-Being Program which teaches mindfulness and goal setting.
Description:
Materials: Handouts the handouts were designed specifically for this study and will be given for each section of the program.
Content and Tasks: The course will be delivered in a 2 hour lecture format. It will include theory and exercises including mindfulness training and practice and filling out a written quality of life plan.
Delivery: the program will be delivered by a mindfulness trainer with a minimum of 5 years' experience.
Mode of delivery - it will be provided in a group.
Size of groups: the approximate size of each of the 2 conditions will be 30 - 60 participants each, split into 2 groups of approx. 15 - 30 each.
Number of times the intervention will be delivered: both versions (2) of the program will be delivered two times, once per week for 6 weeks (2 hr training seminars)
Monitoring intervention compliance: strategies used to monitor adherence to the intervention will include weekly homework diaries and follow up email/phone call if 2/6 classes are missed.
Location - the intervention will be delivered at Atwell Community Centre.

Statistical methods / analysis
Sample size: We were unable to run a Power analysis to calculate the required sample size because this will be the first study to compare mindfulness treatment alone versus the combination of mindfulness treatment and goal setting. However, we will collect data from at least 60 participants in each experimental condition, to allow us to investigate major predictors of response to treatment within each group.
Analysis: The main analyses will evaluate the significance of change from pre-test to the post-test. Prior to conducting the analyses, outliers and normality of the variables will be examined, with the outlier labelling rule. A MANOVA will be conducted across two time points (pre and post) to examine the effect of treatment upon the dependent variables. For univariate effects planned contrasts (pre-post) will be run to clarify interactions and, if significant, t-tests will be conducted within each condition at pre versus post and between conditions at each time point. A reliability analysis will also be conducted to evaluate the test-retest reliability of the measurement scale from 4 weeks before the intervention to immediately before the intervention.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of the project is to compare the well-being effects of a mindfulness training program versus a mindfulness and goal setting program. Subjects will be randomly allocated to one of the two conditions and there will be a maximum of 60 people per course.

Condition 1 is a 2-day version of the mindfulness training section of the previously tested Mindfulness-based Quality of Life and Well-Being Program. Participants will be introduced to general mindfulness theory and principles before being taught techniques and exercises such as progressive muscle relaxation, neutral observation of the breath and present moment awareness.

Condition 2 is the full 2-day Mindfulness-based Quality of Life and Well-Being Program which teaches mindfulness and goal setting. In addition to 1 day of mindfulness training, participants will be trained for 1 day in the theory and methods of goal setting applied to major quality of life domains (relationships, work, money, health and leisure).

Individuals will be given assessments at the beginning and end of the 2-day workshops, and at 4 weeks follow up.
