The standard for mindfulness training programs, including MBSR, is an 8-week, weekly format. This chapter provides the structure for an optional follow-up or booster session that can occur outside of the standard 8-week structure of the program. The booster can be scheduled for a one-month follow-up after the group ends. At the facilitator’s discretion, you may wish to schedule additional boosters, such as at 3 months or even 1 year (such as was done in the original Wisdom Mind study). A booster session can be used to enhance ongoing engagement by promoting continued connection between participants and to troubleshoot difficulties with the practices.
