Abstract

Background: Current theories of mindfulness emphasize the multi-faceted nature of the construct. The cultivation of these mindfulness facets plays a central role in various therapy approaches. Objective: How well can mindfulness as a multidimensional construct be evaluated using the German translation of the Kentucky Inventory of Mindfulness Skills (KIMS-D)? Methods: The 39-item inventory was translated into German and presented to a sample of 469 undergraduate students. The dimensional structure, reliability, and validity of the different scales were evaluated. Results: Results were largely comparable to those obtained for the original American version of the KIMS-D. As anticipated, the four-factor structure was replicated and expected associations with symptom distress and indicators of subjective well-being were found. Conclusions: The German version of the KIMS seems to be an economic, reliable, and valid questionnaire for assessing mindfulness in a multidimensional way.
