Mindfulness-based interventions have been shown to be effective in several mental health problems. However, their application in the context of trauma and dissociation shows still controversial efficacy results. The purpose of this article is to highlight through a review of the literature the potential benefits and possible critical issues in the use of mindfulness practices in the general population and in specific trauma-related disorders. Finally, within the frame of the Polyvagal Theory developed by Porges, a possible explanation for the potential effects of mindfulness practice in trauma and dissociation is suggested.
