Abstract:This research focused on mapping user experiences with a smartphone application as a prototype of the positive psychological intervention Geluk&Zo. This intervention is based on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and focuses on the participant’s ‘values’ that ultimately will lead to ‘committed actions’ and thereby learning to ‘accept’ negative feelings. These concepts are core processes from the psychological flexibility model. For this research, an app has been developed to map the user’s needs and requirements. It also considered the duration of the intervention, the effect and adherence to the intervention and the persuasive communicative and technological aspects. A semi-structured interview is used. The intervention had a partial effect on the participants, because awareness is taking place, but no change in attitude or behaviour yet. The time required for carrying out the exercises is not considered as tedious by the participants. Also the frequency of registration, four times a day, is enough. However, most participants recommended to register for more than two days. The persuasive communicative and technological aspects, as well as the use of a smartphone application, were perceived as positive by the participants. The current prototype app works properly, but can improve in terms of design and some imperfections.
