Mindfulness Programme Outcome Measures
Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire
The Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) (Baer, Smith, Hopkins, Krietmeyer & Toney, 2006) assesses the tendency to be mindful in daily life, including five specific facets of mindfulness: observing, describing, acting with awareness, non-reactivity to inner experience, and non-judging of inner experience. The measure consists of 39 items which are responded to on a 5-point rating scale ranging from 1 “never or very rarely true” to 5 “very often or always true”. Scores range from 39 to 195 with higher scores indicative of greater mindfulness. The measure has shown good reliability in previous research (alpha = .72 to .92 for each facet; Baer et al., 2006).
