This study examined the affects of mindfulness on interpersonal functioning in individuals who experience varying amounts of worry and depressive symptoms (N = 151). On-line measures of interpersonal functioning, dispositional mindfulness, worry, and depressive symptoms were administered. Results of a hierarchical regression indicated that higher depressive symptoms and worry predicted lower interpersonal functioning; lower scores on mindfulness predicted lower interpersonal functioning above and beyond depressive symptoms. These findings suggest that dispositional mindfulness may relate to social functioning after accounting for concurrent symptoms of depression and anxiety. Implications for future research are discussed.
