As is already well-known, emotional disturbances represent the most frequent mental disorders, especially anxiety and depression problems. On the other hand, a mindfulness/acceptance perspective characterizes a framework with direct implications on the human emotional spectrum, including mindfulness/acceptance as a process, strategy, and therapeutical resource. The link between emotional disorders and the mindfulness/acceptance viewpoint has allowed a growing research field to examine areas such as the analysis of acceptance processes as determinants of emotional problems, the analysis of the moderator/mediational role and its use as an efficient emotion regulation strategy, or its role as the mechanism underlying a relevant group of efficient psychological treatments. This Special Issue attempts to deal with research and systematic reviews concerning the mindfulness/acceptance process, strategy, or dispositional trait, and its implications regarding common mental disorders. We especially encourage papers related to the following topics (although not limited to):
- Mindfulness/acceptance processes associated with common mental disturbances;
- Emotion regulation strategies and effective mindfulness/acceptance resources;
- Mindfulness/acceptance as the underlying coping mechanism of emotional disorders;
- Experimental studies analyzing the acquisition and functioning of mindfulness/acceptance processes;
- Psychological treatments of emotional disorders based on a mindfulness/acceptance framework;
- Mindfulness/acceptance as a process, strategy, and dispositional trait;
- Components of mindfulness/acceptance processes;
- Factors associated with fostering mindfulness/acceptance characteristics;
- Resources/methods increasing mindfulness/acceptance ability.
