General Description

CompACT is general measure of ACT processes composed of 23 items, with 3 factors:

  • Openness to Experience [Calculated as the sum of scores for items: 2 (reversed), 4 (reversed), 6 (reversed), 8 (reversed), 11 (reversed), 13, 15 (reversed), 18 (reversed), 20, and 22];
  • Behavioural Awareness [Calculated as the sum of scores for items: 3 (reversed), 9 (reversed), 12 (reversed), 16 (reversed), and 19 (reversed)];
  • Valued Action [Calculated as the sum of scores for items: 1, 5, 7, 10, 14, 17, 21, and 23].

The CompACT demonstrated good internal consistency, and converged and diverged in theory-consistent ways with other variables: higher levels of psychological inflexibility were associated with higher levels of distress and lower levels of health and wellbeing.
