The work of UW-Madison’s Simon Goldberg was recently featured by the University of California, Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center in its annual list of the "Top 10 Insights from the Science of a Meaningful Life in 2017." The results from Goldberg’s paper, "Mindfulness-based interventions for psychiatric disorders," stood out among the hundreds of studies that were on this center’s radar. Goldberg's paper was a major research review of 142 non-overlapping studies that found mindfulness-based interventions hold promise as evidence-based treatments for psychiatric disorders, but not for everyone or for every condition. Goldberg recently completed his Ph.D. with UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology and will be joining that department as an assistant professor in August.
