Poster
Although there has been an increase in studies regarding the efficacy of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT; Hayes, Strosahl & Wilson, 1999, 2014; Wilson & Luciano, 2001) with young clinical population, studies in school settings are rare. In addition, recent research shows the importance of addressing the Big Ones or hierarchical (most problem...

Method: One-hundred undergraduates underwent several ev...

Project
Proyecto I+D financiado por la Unión Europea con inicio en 2019. Participan las siguientes instituciones: - Universidad de Almería (España) - Kore University (Italia) - Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital (EEUU) - Madrid Institute of Contextual Psychology (España) El proyecto se organiza en torno a dos grandes objetivos en un ámbito de gran relevancia social, si bien escasamente estudiado desde la perspectiva funcional del Contextualismo Funcional: adolescentes con dificultades afectivas, problemas en el control de impulsos e hiperactividad. A partir del conocimiento desarrollado en los últimos años en el ámbito de estudio y aplicación de la terapia contextual (Terapia de Aceptación y Compromiso), el proyecto trabaja (1) en la detección de patrones de inflexibilidad psicológica con topografía de rumia y/o impulsividad en adolescentes con alguna de las características diagnósticas señaladas, y (2) en eI diseño y aplicación de un protocolo de intervención centrado en alterar los elementos más frecuentes de la inflexibilidad a partir de los avances en las herramientas de la terapia contextual ACT.
Project
This project continues a research programme initiated in the 90s in several international laboratories with the help of funded projects [4 projects I+D of MEC (1999-02; 2002-05; 2005-08; 2008-11; y 2011-14) and 1 Excellence Project funded by Junta de Andalucia (2006-09)]. The general programme is focused on the contextual analysis of psychological disorders and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). The programme developed by the research group focused on two topics. On the one hand, the analysis of the behavioral regulation characterized in psychological inflexibility or experiential avoidance of discomfort and their expansive and destructive effects on the long term. On the other hand, the analysis of the clinical methods and components that characterize ACT, especifically, values clarification, defusion, and experiential clinical methods and metaphors. In spite of the research conducted, an enough body of knowledge is lacking with respect to the conditions provoking the efficacy of clinical interactions. This is an important point in order to produce therapeutic change in the first sessions, reducing the abandonment, and to the extent that many patients only have the opportunity to receive a reduced number of sessions.
Project
We are designing very brief ACT protocols focused on reducing worry and rumination for treating emotional disorders, mainly depression and generalized anxiety disorder.
