Abstract [en]

Conducting research in clinical psychiatric settings presents significant challenges. Patients’ suffering is often severe, and organizational aspects might hinder the implementation of structured psychological treatment. In this symposium, empirical data are presented from three different projects concerning ACT for different diagnoses –psychosis, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) and high functioning autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The first talk concerns training inpatient ward staff in using the ACT model with psychosis patients. Data suggest slight positive changes in psychological flexibility for patients and staff. The second talk describes the evaluation of an ACT group treatment intervention for BDD outpatients, with results showing significant reductions in BDD symptomatology. The third talk covers a researchproject on ACT adapted for students and psychiatric outpatients with ASD, where data indicate reduced levels of stress and autistic core symptoms. Presenters will share their data, as well as common clinical experiences of implementing ACT in clinical psychiatric contexts.
