Comprehensive assessment of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy processes (CompACT)

Printer-friendly version

The CompACT was developed as a general measure of psychological flexibility (and constituent sub-processes) as conceptualized within the ACT model. The development and initial validation of the measure is reported in the manuscript attached below, which has been published in the Journal of Contextual Behavioral Science (accessible here).

The CompACT is free to use for clinical and research purposes: we have attached the CompACT response form and a scoring calculator below. We hope it will prove to be a useful measure, building on the promise of our initial findings.

Missing data in CompACT

Hello all,

I wonder if anyone more familiar with using the CompACT can provide any guidance on how to handle missing data? I haven't been able to find anything about this in my reading so far I'm using it for a project and have discovered that due to an error some of my participants have been presented with only 22/23 items on the online questionnaire.

I understand that this missing item might invalidate the specific subscale, but would really appreciate any guidance on whether the total score would still be valid.

Thanks all in advance!

using the CompACT as an outcome measure

It would be great to know how others are using the CompACT to measure change pre and post therapeutic contact and what change people feel constitutes meaningful change. We are using Jacobson and Traux’s reliable change index (RCI) to measure outcomes with our work for other measures (DASS21 and WSAS) and wondered whether we could do the same with the CompACT? Any thoughts and comments welcomed. Many thanks, Becky

CompACT research permission

Hy ,
Please, confirm if using CompACT in research is permitted ( PhD research).
Thank you very much.

Using the CompACT

Thank you for your interest. The CompACT is available for clinicians and researchers to use without restriction, so please do feel free to use it in your own research.

We’re keen to see how the CompACT works in different contexts, so would be grateful if you could share any impressions of using the measure or aggregated response-data.
