Abstract: This study explores the mediating role of rumination and valued living in the relationship between mindfulness and depressive symptoms in a sample of women with chronic pain. Women with musculoskeletal chronic pain (N = 124) were recruited online through the advertisement of the study in several national associations for individuals with chronic pain. Participants responded a set of questionnaires that aimed to assess mindfulness, rumination, obstructions to and progress in valued living, and depressive symptoms. All variables were significantly associated in the expected directions. Results showed the relationship between mindfulness and depressive symptoms was fully mediated by rumination and experiencing obstructions in valued living, but not by difficulties in moving forward towards valued living. Clinical implications are discussed. Results seem to suggest the potential benefits of explicitly targeting general rumination and internal obstructions to living congruently to personal values, when conducting mindfulness-based interventions for reducing depression in chronic pain.
