Abstract
Over the past few years, several questionnaires have been developed to measure mindfulness. The
Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS) was created to specifically capture attention and awareness
in daily life (Brown & Ryan, 2003). In this article, we present a French adaptation of the MAAS. In the
1st study, we explored the psychometric properties of this adaptation. In the 2nd study, we investigated
its relation to cognitive emotion regulation and depressive symptomatology using path analysis. As in the
original version of the MAAS, the French adaptation has a strong 1-factor structure. Moreover, there was
a negative relationship between the MAAS and the severity of depressive symptoms, both directly and
indirectly. The indirect pathway was mediated by the nonadaptive cognitive emotion regulation strategy
of self-blame and the adaptive cognitive emotion regulation strategy of positive reappraisal. In conclusion,
this questionnaire represents a valid mindfulness measure for French-speaking clinicians and
researchers.
