Abstract [en]

In recent years, the research base supporting ACT for psychosis has grown (e.g. Bach & Hayes, 2002; Gaudiano & Herbert, 2006; White et al., 2011; Bach, Hayes & Gallop, 2012; Shawyer et al., 2012). In this symposium, pilot results from a small study on a clinical sample in Sweden will be presented. A total of 21 psychotic inpatients were randomized to either treatment as usual (TAU) or TAU plus a short ACT intervention, on average 2 sessions. Groups were measured for rehospitalization and values-based living at pretreatment, posttreatment and four month follow-up. Results indicate that the ACT group was rehospitalized to a lesser extent than the TAU group, although the difference was not significant. Also, the ACT group scored higher on the Bull’s-Eye Values Survey at follow-up, the difference being marginally significant. All in all, the results expand somewhat upon previous findings in the same population (Bach & Hayes, 2002; Gaudiano & Herbert, 2006), by indicating that ACT might affect values-based living in addition to decreasing need for rehospitalization. The next step in this research project in Sweden will be implementing ACT in the ward context in a broader way. This will be done in two ways: 1) By training all ward staff in the method. The effects of this training, and of regular supervision, will be investigated by administering measures of work related acceptance to staff. 2) By investigating ACT as an individual treatment in a larger sample, where therapists will be ward staff using a manual that was custom-made for this particular project.
