Work in the development and evaluation of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) for cancer care has been underway for the last 20 years, and a growing body of literature now supports their efficacy.

This feasibility study compared TL in women previously diagnosed with breast cancer with clinically significant insomnia symptoms (n=70) to an age- and body mass index (BMI)-matched comparison group (n=70) of breast cancer survivors...
