AbstractIntroduction: Mindfulness has emerged as an important correlate of well-being in various clinical populations including cancer patients. The Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) is a widely used 39-item instrument to assess five facets of mindfulness. The present study evaluates the psychometric properties of its 20-item short version (FFMQ-SF) in the Chinese context. Research Design: This study was based on a clinical sample of 127 Chinese colorectal cancer patients. Factorial validity was assessed using exploratory factor analysis and Bayesian structural equation modeling with zero-mean small variance informative priors on cross-loadings and residual covariances. Convergent validity was examined by regressing physical and mental health measures on ilie FFMQ-SF facets. Results: The five-factor structure with approximate zero cross-loadings provided an acceptable fit (PP limits = -3.3 to 114.3, PPP= 0.038, PPPP = 0.701) to the data with satisfactory reliability (a= 0.69 to 0.85). Out of the five facets, acting with awareness consistently predicted lower levels of perceived stress, negative affect, anxiety, depression and illness symptoms (II= -0.35 to -0.41 ,p < .05) and better quality of life (fl = 0.27 to 0.31, p < .05). Interestingly, this facet was not significantly associated (r = 0.03 to 0.17,p > 0.05) with the oilier facets. Conclusions: The present findings provide support to the factorial validity and reliability of the FFMQ-SF as a precise assessment of different facets of mindfulness. Further studies are needed to elucidate the convergent validity of the FFMQ-SF in other contexts.
