Abstract:Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) becomes more and more popular. Different studies show that ACT is effective. In spite of all the research about the effectiveness of ACT, there is little information about the processes of the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. In this research, the focus is based on the development of the psychological flexibility toward the chronic pain patients during the Acceptation and Commitment Therapy at the Roessingh Rehabilitation Center. Further, this research gives attention to one of the most important processes of ACT: committed action. Six chronic pain patients were weekly interviewed during an eight week lasting therapy. The processes psychological flexibility and committed action were measured during these interviews. Although every patient shows his own way of development, ACT is clearly able to influence the psychological flexibility and committed action. Additional, the results of this research demonstrate that there can be a process of acceptance without a process of committed action. On the other hand, this research shows that there cannot be a process of committed action without a process of acceptance. This proves that being open for and accepting of certain thoughts and feelings is a condition for committed action.
