The present Masters thesis deals with the topic of mindfulness within the psychosocial context. The theoretical part first examines the phenomenon of stress, and then discusses the emotional state of anxiety, including its diverse characteristics which can manifest themselves as panic. The major objective of this research is to determine whether clients who are affected by anxiety or panic can reduce stress because of general mindfulness, or more spe-cifically, when using mindfulness based interventions.Moreover, this thesis gives an insight into the elements of mindfulness, and outlines the positive effects of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Method by Jon Kabat-Zinn with regard to an event of anxiety.The empirical part is based on the scientific evidence relating to mindfulness of individuals in psychosocial professions. Problem-centered interviews were conducted with people working in psychosocial professions to examine the role of indivdual mindfulness in professional care.The results of this study show that the use of mindfulness by the supporting staff leads to positive effects, which are not only reflected in the relationship to the clients, but also influence the staffs own well-being.Using mindfulness in the professional context results in stress reduction in patients affected by anxiety and panic. Besides applying mindfulness based interventions in the professional context, personal mindfulness practice as a private matter is of particular importance.
