Abstract:Objective: This systematic literature review investigates the best possible self-intervention (BPS-intervention). The aim of this systematic literature review is to explore under which conditions the BPS-intervention is implemented, which are the most favourable conditions and outcomes the BPS-intervention influences. Method: A systematic review was conducted in the databases PsychInfo, Scopus, and PubMed, with the search string “Possible selves” AND one of the following terms: intervention OR therapy OR activity. The review revealed 16 studies that fit the inclusion criteria. Results: The main conditions researched in these studies were: age of the participants (<21, 21-30, >30), occupations of the participants (students, students and workers, and school children), the manner how the intervention was implemented (Online or in person, with or without a mental imagery exercise, duration, with open or domain-specific instruction) and outcomes that can be influenced. Conclusion and discussion: Conclusions can be made about the participants of the intervention and in which manner it should be implemented. The content of the intervention, on the other hand, should undergo more research. Further research should focus on a better person-activity fit for the best possible self-intervention.
