En este estudio se analizan los efectos que un programa de entrenamiento en conciencia plena (mindfulness) produjo sobre el sentimiento de crecimiento y autorrealización personal en adolescentes estudiantes de Bachillerato. Se realizó un diseño controlado y aleatorizado con un grupo experimental y un grupo control en lista de espera con medición pretest-postest, utilizando como instrumento de medida el Cuestionario de Autoconcepto y Autorrealización (AURE). Los resultados obtenidos muestran la existencia de diferencias significativas entre las puntuaciones postest-pretest, en los factores generales y subfactores evaluados. Se concluye que un programa de meditación, centrado en el entrenamiento de la conciencia plena (mindfulness), puede ser un instrumento válido y adecuado para promover el crecimiento y autorrealización personal y se sugiere su utilización de manera complementaria con el programa psicoeducativo PIECAP.

Impact of a training program in full consciousness (mindfulness) in the measure of growth and personal self-realization. This research focused on the impact of a full awareness (mindfulness) program on the sense of growth and personal self-realization in a sample of secondary school students. A randomized controlled design with an experimental group and waiting-list group was implemented. The Self-concept and Self-actualization Questionnaire (AURE) was used as dependent variable and was administrated before and after running the mindfulness program. The results show a statistically significant difference between pre-test and post-test scores on all factors and subfactors of the AURE. It is concluded that a program of meditation, focused on mindfulness training, may be a valid and appropriate instrument to improve a personal sense of self-realization and growth. It is also suggested that the use of such a program could be complementary with the Instructional-Emotive Program for Personal Growth and Self-realization (PIECAP) psycho-educational program.
