Abstract:Objective: To measure the two core processes of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) ‘Mindfulness and acceptance’ and ‘Valued based action’, the use of questionnaires is important. The first process can be measured by the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II), for the second process a new scale - named the Twente Values Scale - is developed and validated in this study. Method: 108 students of Psychology in the Netherlands completed a raw version of 31 items of the Twente Values Scale. Results: An Exploratory Factor Analyses (Maximum Likelihood) validated a three-factor structure which in total exist of eleven items. The factors are labeled as ‘Knowing values’, ‘Life satisfaction’ and ‘Value-based action’. The internal consistency (Cronbach’s alpha) for each subscale and the total scale was .86 (Knowing values), .81 (Life satisfaction), .70 (Value-based action) and .84 (Total scale). Conclusion and discussion: The results support the use of the Twente Values Scale in the future. Before using the Twente Values Scale, the scale must be further explored.
