AbstractGuided imagery is an effort-effective therapeutic technique which operates by guiding participants to form mental images. The current study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of guided imagery in promoting mindful parenting, as well as validating the unique effectiveness of mindful visualization over other types of guided imagery. Half of the 68 parents recruited were assigned to receive mindful guided imagery, and the others relaxation guided imagery. Their self-ratings on stress and mindful parenting across stressful parenting scenarios were collected prior and after the guided imagery presentation. Results suggested that a single guided imagery intervention could not promote mindful parenting across scenarios and no difference was found between the two guided imagery types. Possible research design enhancements were discussed, providing future directions for further investigations on the potential application of guided imagery in mindful parenting. Key
