Participants completed the impulsivity scale and the problem-solving styles questionnaire in pretest, posttest, and follow up. The experimental group underwent eight 60-minute sessions of mindfulness training, and the control group did not receive any intervention. The data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of covariance.
