Abstract:This study analyzes which determinants from the Relapse Prevention Model are related to experiencing relapse in living to the fullest up to 2,5 years after following a class (Living to the Fullest (Bohlmeijer and Hulsbergen, 2009)) based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. One hundred and thirty one participants were included. The assessment included the Centre of Epidemiological Studies – Depression Scale (CES-D) (Radloff, 1977), the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale – Anxiety (HADS-A) (Zigmond & Snaith, 1983), the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire II (AAQ-II) (Bond et. al., 2011), questions based on determinants from the Relapse Prevention Model (Marlatt & Gordon, 1985), evaluative questions and questions about a follow-up class. Results indicated that depressive symptoms increased after a period of no stimulation. Determinants related to behavioural relapse in living to the fullest were positive emotions, negative emotions and the Abstinence Violation Effect. Participants evaluated the course mostly positive, and they would appreciate a follow up course if professional guidance is guaranteed
