Mindfulness-Based Self Efficacy Scale (MSES-R)

Mindfulness-based Self-Efficacy Scale (MSES-R)


Author: Bruno A. Cayoun DPsych, MiCBT Institute

Description: This client-rated questionnaire measures the change in levels of perceived self-efficacy before, during, and after mindfulness-based therapy programs. It is used for both clinical and research purposes, with the advantage of measuring the consequences, rather than just the processes, of mindfulness training. 

The lower the score, the lower self-efficacy is in using mindfulness skills. Accordingly, effective mindfulness practice increases the scores, both on sub scales and in total.

  • Administration usually requires between 2 and 4 minutes.
  • Readability is appropriate for adolescents and adult scorers.

The MSES was originally a 35-item self-report questionnaire constructed to measure the change in levels of self-efficacy before, during, and following mindfulness-based therapy programs. The MSES-R is a shorter (22-item) version that emerged from psychometric data collected from a community sample (N = 521). It is a valid and reliable measure, with a 6-factor structure.

Research collaboration is welcome and can be discussed with the principal author.
